Happy Day after Thanksgiving! I pray you had a restful and full Thanksgiving with family and/or friends around you. I’m back at work for one day before the weekend but that extra day off mid-week was just what I needed.
Today, I’m sharing the first line from When I Close My Eyes by Elizabeth Musser. This is the first book I’ve read by Musser and even a week after I finished it, I’m still thinking about it. It definitely made an impression.
About the Book
Could she ever share the secret of The Awful Year?
There is one story that novelist Josephine Bourdillon shirked from writing. And now she may never have a chance. Trapped in her memories, she lies in a coma.
The man who put her there is just as paralyzed. Former soldier Henry Hughes failed to complete the kill. What’s more: he never received full payment–funds that would ensure surgery for his son.
As detectives investigate disturbing fan letters, a young but not-so-naïve Paige Bourdillon turns to her mother’s turbulent past for answers. Could The Awful Year be worse than the one they’re living now?
Set against the flaming hills of North Carolina and the peaceful shores of the Mediterranean Sea, When I Close My Eyes tells the story of two families struggling with dysfunction and finding that love is stronger than death.

Today on my blog I’m sharing the first line from On My Honour by Elizabeth Johns. I’m at the 72% mark in the book, so I’ll share another line here.

Happy reading! ❤

Wow, this book sounds so very intriguing and like a very good page turner!! I definitely would love to read this book. I am sharing from One Dark Wish by Sharon Wray: Two weeks later, Sarah was lost.

Happy Friday! My first line is from “Ruby Jane: The Montana Marshalls” by Susan May Warren:

I’ve seen others talking about this one but don’t have a copy yet. Looks like a good read though!
This week on my blog I shared the first line from Wings Like a Dove by Camille Eide. It’s what I’m reading right now so I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (9) here: “Anna greeted her students Monday morning with a cheer she did not feel.” Have a great weekend and happy reading!

I read this one right after I read Coral and while the two deal with the same topics, this one was hands down my favorite because of the faith and forgiveness element in the story.
