Happy Friday, y’all!!! I feel like I’m going in a dozen different directions at once this week. Hubby is moving to a different shift at work, we’ve started a new homeschool curriculum for the kids, and Christian Fiction Readers Retreat less than a week away!!!
Check out the gorgeous cover of this week’s feature!
To Capture Her Heart by Rebecca DeMarino
June 21, 1653
“The thunder of a thousand hooves pounded in her ears and she buried her head beneath her tethered hands.”
That is an edge of your seat first line!! The first book in this series was fabulous and I love that the series is inspired by the author’s own ancestors. I enjoy dabbling in genealogy and have found some interesting individuals while researching my and my husband’s trees.
One of the most notable ancestors I’ve found is Daniel Boone, my hubby’s 1st cousin 9x removed. My husband and I both have loads of English, Irish, and German blood. Hubby even has a great-great-grandfather who was born in Russia and immigrated to Texas!
Colonial America to fresh off the boat, history is fascinating when we feel connected to it. Tell me what you know about your ancestry in the comments!
So, open the book nearest to you and post the first line in a comment below!
If you’d like to share the First Line Friday fun on your blog, let Carrie know!
