First Line Fridays – Walking Shoes by Lynne Gentry

First Line FridaysHere’s another First Line Fridays hosted by Hoarding Books!  It’s a fun way to share good books and spread the love of words on the page.

I have had this book on my kindle for over a year and embarrassed I haven’t read it yet. I’ve been told it is fabulous. Given that it is about a preacher’s wife, I can’t wait to dig in and see how much of it I can relate to. 🙂 The book is Walking Shoes by Lynne Gentry.

About the book:

walking shoes by lynne gentry

Sooner or later everyone encounters a fork in the road. When Leona Harper crashes into tragedy, the shocked pastor’s wife is forced to summon her estranged children home. But parenting young adults in this nosy, small, southern town may prove more difficult than reinventing herself. Determined to give her broken family a shot at a second chance, Leona begins to put one foot in front of the other. Reconciliation and healing won’t come easy in this zany, trouble-filled, walk-through-grief adventure. Tear-jerking candor. Fast-paced humor. Hope in the darkness. Fans of Jan Karon, Ann B. Ross, and Philip Gulley will enjoy exploring the dusty town of Mt. Hope. Escape into this delicious Mt. Hope Southern Adventure.

First Line:

“Living in the parsonage is not for sissies.” Leona Harper’s husband planted a kiss on the top of her head. “If you want to wear fancy red shoes, wear ’em, darlin’.”

  1. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Yesterday’s Promises” by Kimberly Rae Jordan:

    “Danica Callaghan sank down on the lowest of the wide, built-in, carpeted risers and surveyed her handiwork.”

  2. Happy Friday! On my blog, I am featuring a book by J. Stephen Lang, The Christian History Devotional. Here, will share a couple lines from the chapter I’m currently on. “1731: One of the world’s most famous books happens to be a Christian book, though most people think of it as an adventure story. It is Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe, published in 1719.” I wish you a wonderful weekend.

    “Llyn Torfinn stood at an i-net station, listening nervously, clasping her thin left arm with her right hand. Not much muscle padded the bones.”

    On my blog today I shared the first line from The Forgiving Jar by Wanda E Brunstetter but I’m currently about to start Breach of Trust by Rachel Dylan so I’ll share the first line from that book here: “Mia Shaw gripped a bundle of brightly colored helium balloons with the word congratulations splashed all over them.” Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of quality reading time!
