First-Line Friday: A Lineage of Grace by Francine Rivers

Happy First-Line Friday, friends! 

This week, I’m featuring a book that I received for Christmas ~ I love feeling packages and knowing – just *knowing* that there is a book inside of the wrapping paper, don’t you!? 🙂 I’m almost finished with reading this one and hope to give you a little review on it soon ~ not enough time to get to it today. 


The Book:

A Lineage of Grace: Five Stories of Unlikely Women Who Changed Eternity

By Francine Rivers

First Line:

When Tamar saw Judah leading a donkey burdened with sacks and a fine rug, she took her hoe and ran to the farthest border of her father’s land.

Book-loving friends, it’s your turn. 🙂 What’s the first line of the book that you’re reading? Let us know in the comments below!
May your weekend be blessed with God’s presence in His Son Jesus Christ!

    Today, I’m hosting Oath of Honor on my site. I just started it, so I’m only at chapter 3. So, here I will share the first couple of lines from that chapter.

    “‘Kevin!’ But with the doors shut and the windows up, he wouldn’t hear her whispered shout. She should have lied and said the place was covered in cameras.”

    Happy Friday!

    My First Line Friday comes from a book I’m reading now, Any Day Now by Robyn Carr.

    So, this is what a new life looks like. Sierra Jones opened her eyes on a sunny Colorado morning to that thought.

    Have a great weekend and stay warm!

    Always a good bet when you pick up one of Francine Rivers’s books.

    I’m featuring Valerie Fraser Luesse’s “Missing Isaac” over at my blog, but the first line of the book that is currently sitting in front of is:

    “It was no surprise to me that I’d lost track of time.” (from A Song of Home by Susie Finkbeiner)

    Happy Friday!

    I’ve always been fascinated by Tamar’s story, I’ll have to work this book in!

    Death had a way of creeping up on a soul, and Ivy Thorpe was determined that when it visited her, she would not be surprised.
