First Line Friday ~ Hope Between the Pages

Award-winning author Pepper Basham is dipping her pen into dual-time with Hope Between the Pages.


About the Book 

Uncover the Story Behind a One-Hundred-Year-Old Love Letter

Walk through Doors to the Past via a new series of historical stories of romance and adventure.

Clara Blackwell helps her mother manage a struggling one-hundred-year old family bookshop in Asheville, North Carolina, but the discovery of a forgotten letter opens a mystery of a long-lost romance and undiscovered inheritance which could save its future. Forced to step outside of her predictable world, Clara embarks on an adventure with only the name Oliver as a hint of the man’s identity in her great-great-grandmother’s letter. From the nearby grand estate of the Vanderbilts, to a hamlet in Derbyshire, England, Clara seeks to uncover truth about family and love that may lead to her own unexpected romance.


Expected publication date is April 1.

    2. I LOVE Derbyshire, but the description is an old one. Barbour is supposed to be updating it. I have so many books that take place in Derbyshire, I switched this one to the Lake District

    3. Pepper, I'm so sorry I didn't realize the description is not the correct one. It was on Goodreads. Is there another one somewhere?

  4. Happy Friday! 😀
    Today on my blog, I'm sharing the first line from Active Defense by Lynette Eason: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2021/01/15/first-line-friday-170/. I'm currently in the middle of a chapter so I'll share a line randomly from there here. "Travis wanted to pounce but waited."
    Hope you have an excellent weekend! 🙂❤📚

    1. I enjoy Lynette's books. I've been a long time fan. I'll have to check with my library for Active Defense. I think I just read in one of the FB groups someone say they stayed up way too late last night reading it because they couldn't put it down. :)

      Thanks for stopping by! Have a blessed weekend.

    Today on my blog I am sharing the first line from Caryl McAdoo's Quincy & Priscilla: A the Lowell House.
    "The hall clock struck the first twelve bongs; Priscilla touched her flute to her mother's as the second chime sounded."

  8. Can’t wait to read Pepper’s book. I just finished the first of this series.

    My first line comes from Dreams of Savannah by Roseanna White:
    Savannah, Georgia May 1861
    Cordeliia Owens had dreamed of this day a hundred times. This moment. This story just waiting to happen

    1. Paula, I know you're going to love this one!!! Pepper has really upped the bar with this one. :-)

      I've heard really great things about Dreams of Savannah. I didn't want to get overwhelmed at the start of the new year so I didn't sign up but I'm hoping at some point I'll be able to snag a copy to read.
