First Line Friday — The Liberty Bride

14 Dec

Happy Friday! What will you be reading over the Christmas holiday? I have The Liberty Bride by Marylu Tyndall on my TBR list. I have enjoyed the Daughters of The Mayflower series very much and am looking forward to another great read.


Leave a comment with your first line, then head over to Hoarding Books for more fabulous first lines!



War Forces a Choice Between Love and Country

A trip home from England to Maryland in 1812 finds Emeline Baratt a captive on a British warship and forced to declare her allegiance between the British and Americans. Remaining somewhat politically neutral on a ship where her nursing skills are desperately needed is fairly easy—until she starts to have feelings for the first lieutenant who becomes her protector. However, when the captain sends her and Lieutenant Owen Masters on land to spy, she must choose between her love for him and her love for her country.


Award winning and best-selling author, MaryLu Tyndall dreamt of pirates and sea-faring adventures during her childhood days on Florida’s Coast. After obtaining a degree in Math and working as software engineer for 15 years, she decided to test the waters as a writer. With now more than seventeen books published, she makes no excuses for the deeply spiritual themes embedded within her romantic adventures. As a follower of Christ, her stories often reflect her own journey and walk with God. Her hope is that readers will not only be entertained but will be brought closer to the Creator who loves them beyond measure. In a culture that accepts the occult, wizards, zombies, and vampires without batting an eye, MaryLu hopes to show the awesome present and powerful acts of God in a dying world. MaryLu makes her home with her husband, six children, two grandkids, and three cats on the California coast, where her imagination still surges with the sea.

    Happy Friday! Over on my blog I’m sharing the first line from My Heart Belongs in the Blue Ridge by Pepper Basham. Here I’ll share the first line from Chapter 13 of the same book.

    “Laurel hadn’t left the house in three days. Neither had anyone else.”

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Happy Friday!🎄🎅

    My first lines come from Lowcountry Bookshop by Susan M Boyer…….

    The dead are prone to secrecy. Eighteen years ago, my best friend Colleen took the outbound train to the next world. She’s seen behind the curtain, knows the answers to a great many questions. But since she’s been back in her role as guardian spirit, she can’t share this information with me. It’s against the rules, that’s what she tells me.

    Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!📚😊💕

    I’ve seen this one around the ‘net. It must be good. My TBR pile is full but wish I had time to read it.

    I know it’s Saturday already, but this has been my first chance to comment. Yesterday, my husband and I had the privilege of attending our daughter’s commencement for her master’s degree and we hosted her graduation party at our house afterward. Now, for FLF, on my blog I featured a Love Inspired novel by Winnie Griggs, Once Upon a Texas Christmas. Since this is my current read, I will share the first line in Chapter 18: “Abigail escorted Seth and Jamie into the schoolroom as soon as she’d seen the last of the children leave.” Have a wonderful rest of your weekend!

      Congrats to your daughter! I have had a busy weekend too — visited the Biltmore with family. Have a great week!

    I’ve already had the chance to read it and loved it. Hope you get the chance to read it soon!
    I’m a little late going around this weekend but I’ve had a couple busy days leading up to my extended family Christmas with my in-laws today. The book I shared on my blog this week is Between Two Shores by Jocelyn Green releasing in Feb 2019 but I haven’t been able to start my next read yet so I don’t have an extra line to share. I hope you have a great weekend and are able to get some quality reading time in!
