First Lines Friday, 56, and BBH ~ 4/10/20

Today's "First Lines" and "56" are from:

First Lines


Body rigid, ears trained on the sound coming from the dilapidated structure, she waited.  Breaths came in staccato pants, the heat of a brutal Afghan summer beating down on her.

 Page 56

"The men and women beside you are your friends, your partners.  You're on the same team."  Heath said at the close of his presentation as he stepped off the stage, walking the center aisle, pleased that he hadn't fainted, blacked out or chocked up.

 Q.  What is a book that has helped you get through your lowest point in life? (submitted by Leelynn @ Sometimes Leelynn Reads)

 A.  The Book that has helped me in my lowest points of life is most definitely the Bible.  Other than the Bible, a few are Beyond Blue by Therese Borchard, and From Panic to Power by Lucinda Bassett.  I'm also comforted by any lighthearted inspirational fiction.

  1. I am like you-- in the lowest moments, the Bible has always provided me right words to help me through them. So glad I found your blog. :)

  2. Happy Good Friday!

    I totally agree with you that the book that's helped me in the lowest points of my life is definitely the Bible!

    On my blog this week, I'm sharing the first line from The Truth in Tiramisu by Rachael Bloome:

    "Every time Eliza Carter closed her eyes, she saw his face."

    Hope you have a lovely Easter weekend :)

    1. Sounds like a good read. You have a lovely weekend as well :)

  3. Love the German Shepherd on the cover. Makes me miss Mason, mom's old dog.
    Sounds like a great read too, and I love the dog is a main character. :-)
    I also chose The Bible. I read it every morning before doing anything else.Take that moment with God first. :-)
    Happy Easter weekend! Stay safe!

    1. I like that you read the Bible before doing anything else. I usually have my reading time in the afternoon when I can sit down and really focus on what I'm reading. Happy Easter!

  4. My book this week is THE HOUSE AT THE END OF THE MOOR by Michelle Griep.
    March 1861 Dartmoor Prison, Devon, England

    Death prowled the cell block like a dark animal seeking prey— especially the weakest.

    1. I've loved everything I've read by Michelle Griep! I'm sure this will be a wonderful book :) Have a great weekend!

  5. Happy Friday! My first line is from "The Color of Love" by Kimberly Rae Jordan:

    "Charles Beaumont Allerton Junior tugged at the hem of his button-up shirt, hoping to work out some of the wrinkles that his rapid - and poor - packing job had created."

  6. Happy Friday!
    Today I'm sharing from chapter 27 in The Happy Camper by Melody Carlson.
    "Still needing to get groceries for tonight's dinner with Jordan, Dillon was tempted to skip the Silver Slipper altogether."
    Hope you have a great Easter weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚❤๐Ÿ“–

  7. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I shared the first line from The Lost Lieutenant by Erica Vetsch but I'm currently reding The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck by Bethany Turner so I'll share the first line from chapter 11 here: "Since our Sunday lunch had been so rudely interrupted by, you know…reality, Ben and I decided our first date called for a do-over." Happy reading!

  8. Is your book nonfiction? Hope you are staying safely away from the nasty virus. My Friday Quotes

  9. I'm an easy person - I see a dog on the cover and I'm already intrigued! The quotes only confirmed it :)
