First Line Friday: March 8th

As always First Line Friday comes courtesy of Hoarding Books Blog.  I discovered this magic thanks to Crystal at Must Love Reviews.

This week I am highlighting a book that is expected to be released on April 2, 2019…

When Claire Rawlings thought of her family, it was more with the mind of a geologist than a physician – the sweeping drumlin of Andrea’s collarbone, the narrow plain of Lily’s sternum, the sculpted features of Glen’s face. Her dreams, too, were crowded with images of rocks and continents gliding, meeting at ragged seams, and then drifting apart.

Interesting…what?  Well now I have to know continue reading to see the correlation between a geologist and a physician.  That’s a bit of a bizarre comparison, no?

OH!  You probably want to know what book this is too…ok, ok, ok, here it is.

Little Lovely Things by Maureen Joyce Connolly

Look for my review of this book to come soon!  There has been a lot of hype about this book, I hope it lives up to the excitement.  As an added bonus, I’m going to leave you with the Goodreads synopsis today too!

A mother’s chance decision leads to a twist of fate that is every parent’s worst nightmare.

Claire Rawlings, mother of two and medical resident, will not let the troubling signs of an allergic reaction prevent her from making it in for rounds. But when Claire’s symptoms overpower her while she’s driving into work, her two children in tow, she must pull over. Moments later she wakes up on the floor of a gas station bathroom-her car, and her precious girls have vanished.

The police have no leads and the weight of guilt presses down on Claire as each hour passes with no trace of her girls. All she has to hold on to are her strained marriage, a potentially unreliable witness who emerges days later, and the desperate but unquenchable belief that her daughters are out there somewhere.

Little Lovely Things is the story of a family shattered by an unthinkable tragedy. Played out in multiple narrative voices, the novel explores how the lives of those affected fatefully intersect, and highlights the potential catastrophe of the small decisions we make every day.

  1. Happy Friday and Weekend! My first line is from “Castle on the Rise” by Kristy Cambron:

    “Fairy-tale weddings never included rain on the guest list. Or snow – and they had both.”

  2. I’m sharing from Katherine Wentworth by D.E. Stevenson on my blog today. Here’s a semi-random sentence from the e-book page I’m on:

    “All around us were the rolling hills, one behind the other as far as eye could see; they were like huge green billows in a rough Atlantic gale, which had suddenly frozen into a state of immobility. Later they would be clad in heather, purple as the robes of a king.”

    Happy reading and have a wonderful Friday and Weekend !

  3. Sorry I didn’t make it around earlier this weekend! This week on my blog I featured Night Road by Kristin Hannah but I’m currently reading Finally Accepted by Toni Shiloh. I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (6) here: “Chloe sat out on her apartment deck with a cup of herbal tea and her Bible.” Hope you had a great weekend!
