Happy Friday! We actually had a dusting of snow here in Nashville overnight on Monday. November snow is early for us but it most definitely put me in the holiday spirit!
This week I’m sharing the first line from a book that exceeded all of my rather high expectations. If you haven’t read Kristi Ann Hunter’s A Pursuit of Home yet, I highly recommend it.
About the Book
In early 1800s England, Jess Beauchene has spent most of her life in hiding and always on the move in an effort to leave her past far behind her. But when she learns the family she thought had died just might be alive and in danger, she knows her secrets can only stay buried for so long.
Derek Thornbury loves the past, which has led him to become an expert in history and artifacts. He knows Jess has never liked him, but when she requests his help deciphering the clues laid out in an old family diary, he can’t resist the urge to solve the puzzle.
As Jess and Derek race to find the hidden artifact before her family’s enemies, they learn as much about each other as they do about the past. But can their search to uncover the truth and set history right lead to a future together?
Now it’s your turn! Grab the book nearest you and drop the first line in the comments. Then head over to Hoarding Books and discover what others are sharing this week!
