Here’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:
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.
“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’.”
Now it’s your turn! Grab the nearest book (or the book you are reading) and share the first line in the comments. Then head over to Hoarding Books and check out the linky with more First Line participants.
