First Line Friday - Keturah

Thursday, February 22, 2018

Happy Friday!

You might remember that I visited the Caribbean a couple months ago. Well, as it happens, as soon as I returned home, I had the opportunity to sign up for a book tour for Keturah - The Sugar Baron's Daughters - Book One. All I had to read was "Caribbean" and I signed up in a flash! I can't wait to dive into this book over the weekend!

Happy Reading!

Today’s first line is from...

Lisa T. Bergren

10 June, 1773
Rivenshire, England
In the hopes that at least one would get through, their father had sent three copies of his last letter from the West Indies; as it happened, his daughters received them all.


What is a setting that you enjoy reading about?

  1. I would love to read Carrie's new book Across the Blue.

  2. Happy Friday!
    Over on my blog this week I'm sharing the first line from Sarah Sundin's "The Sea Before Us". It's a fantastic story!
    Here I'll share with you the first line from chapter 5 of the same book.
    "Teleprinters chattered and telephones buzzed, and Dorothy carried a stack of diagrams into the intelligence office."

    Happy Friday and Happy Reading!

  5. Happy Friday!!

    My FLF comes from a book I’m hoping to get to soon, Looking for a Hero by Debbie Macomber.

    Savannah Charles watched the young woman wandering around her bridal shop, checking prices and looking more discouraged by the moment. Her shoulders slumped and she bit her lip when she read the tag on the wedding gown she’d selected.

    Have a great weekend!!

  6. “Hi, everyone,” the young woman with the rounded belly on a stick-thin frame, long blond hair, and large haunted eyes, began.
    By Kathi Daley

  7. Happy Friday! I absolutely loved Keturah! :)

  8. Out of the Ordinary by Jen Turano
    “Slipping through the crowd gathered on the upper deck of a most extravagant yacht, Miss Gertrude Cadwalader drew in a breath and adopted an air of what she hoped would be taken for nonchalance.”

  9. I'm sharing the first line from If I Run by Terri Blackstock on my blog today, but I'm about to start reading The Winsome Miss Winthrop by Carolyn Miller,which releases in March. Here's the first line:

    The deeply blue Gloucestershire sky brought comfort as Catherine Winthrop emerged from the tenant farmhouse.

    I love Carolyn Miller's books, so I'm looking forward to reading this one!

    Have a great weekend!

  10. Love that first line! On my blog, I’m featuring A Worthy Pursuit by Karen Witemeyer. Here, I will share a line from a book I am currently reading. The Heaven Answer Book by Billy Graham. Isn’t that timely? 🙂 The first line in the Preface is “One of the Bible’s greatest truths is that we were not meant for this world alone. We were meant for Heaven — and Heaven is our ultimate home. But what exactly is Heaven?” I wish you a wonderful weekend.

  11. This does sound like a good. Happy Friday! On my blog I am showcasing Margaret Mizushima excellent K-9 series about Robo. I just finished reading Veronica Heley's FALSE PRIDE.
    "Late Saturday morning ‘M rs Abbot …!’‘What is it?’ Bea Abbot was terse."

  12. Phew, Keturah is getting some love this week (as it should).

    Not much had changed about Laurel Cove, North Carolina in the ten years since Livy Johnson had last visited. (Someplace Familiar by Teresa Tysinger)

  13. Happy Friday! I'm sharing from Michelle Griep's The Innkeeper's Daughter on my blog today. Here are the first two lines from one of my other current reads, Winter in Thrush Green by Miss Read:

    "Autumn had come early to Thrush Green. The avenue of horse-chestnuts, which ran across its northerly end, blazed like a bonfire."

  14. Happy Friday! My first line is from My Heart Belongs in Castle Gate, Utah by Angie Dicken:

    "Leanna McKee pushed her hat by its brim, hiding her face as best she could. She would not let him see her."

  15. I need to squeeze this one in. #allthebooks

  16. Happy Saturday!!!

    On my blog, I'm sharing the first lines from Lisa T. Bergren's fantastic novel, Keturah, too. Here, I will share the first lines from the novel I'm currently reading, A Brush with the Beast by Richard Sones.

    "Good night, Mr. D," chirped an elderly secretary as Nick left his office on another late night. Slim, young, black briefcase in hand, he walked briskly toward the door.

  17. This looks like a wonderful book! Happy Saturday!

  18. Looking forward to someday reading this one!! Hopefully soonish. :)
