  1. I loved that book! Can't wait to check out the blog hop!

    My first line today comes from Karen Sargent's 'Waiting For Butterflies':

    "Maggie heard the key in the front door and looked at the clock on the nightstand: 1:48 a.m. Nearly twenty four hours had passed since the phone had jarred her awake and Sam out of bed."

  6. She sounds very intimidated/overwhelmed, but courageous. That's a good start for any heroine's story.

    Here's mine:

    A Most Inconvenient Marriage by Regina Jennings

    February 1865
    Gratiot Street Prison
    St. Louis, Missouri

    “First, you’re going to write a good-bye letter to my sweetheart, and then you’re going to marry me.”

  7. I love the title! Of course, I am thinking of Oxford, England. :) On a random note, while I was studying in Oxford, England, my professor was leaving my university to go and teach in Oxford, Mississippi. :)
