First Line Friday #14

Happy Friday!

This week I’m featuring:

53154863

“They was nothin I could do for her. Her eyes was fixed on the sky and she never moved again. Despite me shakin her, she was gone.”

 

I just got my copy of this the other day. I’m really looking forward to reading it! Cindy K. Sproles is a new author for me. I’ll be posting my review soon.

 

About the book:

Worie Dressar is 19 years old when influenza and dysentery ravage her Appalachian Mountain community in 1898, leaving behind a growing number of orphaned children with no way to care for themselves. Worie’s mother has been secretly feeding a number of these little ones on Sourwood Mountain. But when she dies suddenly, Worie is left to figure out why and how she was caring for them.

Plagued with two good-for-nothing brothers–one greedy and the other a drunkard–Worie fights to save her home and the orphaned children now in her begrudging care. Along the way, she will discover the beauty of unconditional love and the power of forgiveness as she cares for all of Momma’s children.

  1. Hello! 🙂
    Today on my blog I’m sharing the first line from If I Were You by Lynn Austin. I’m currently on chapter 11, so I’ll share from there.
    “USA 1950
    Eve barely slept.”
    Hope you have a great weekend filled with awesome reading time. 🙂❤📚
