Welcome to First Line Fridays. What is First Line Fridays?? It’s where we share the first line only of a book we are currently reading, or one that is on our shelves. This week’s first is from The Promise Of A Letter by Kathleen Fuller.
Here is the first line:
Leanna Chupp clasped her hands behind her back as her Rollerblades glided against asphalt.
I love Kathleen Fuller’s Amish novels so I’m always excited about a new release by her!
Here’s more about the book:
The Promise Of A Letter by Kathleen Fuller
Published: August 15th,2017
A letter brings him back to his Amish family. It will take someone truly extraordinary to make him stay.
Roman is on the verge of leaving the Amish ways. Feeling confined by the strict rules, he longs to do something more with his life. But when things don’t go as planned, Roman’s prospects outside of the community dwindle. Upon learning that his beloved grandmother has died and left a letter urging him to reconcile with his brother in Birch Creek, Roman decides to return home. But he doesn’t plan to stay for long.
Leanna Chupp has always made her own way in her small community of Birch Creek. Though some may call her unconventional—strange, even—Leanna is happy. Her unique outlook on life has meant she’s never had many suitors pursuing courtship, which Leanna doesn’t mind. She is content being single.
But when Roman and Leanna find themselves working together again, everything changes. Though neither fit squarely within the strictures of the Amish faith, their differences could be the very thing to help them form a deeper connection to their community and to each other. The question remains: will this strengthening bond be enough to make Roman stay for good?

London. May 1914. Rosemary Gresham may have been a thief but she was a thief who preferred to work in broad daylight. From A Name Unknown by Roseanna White! Loving this book. Can’t get enough Roseanna!
Fun first line! Love rollerblading!
Here is mine:

This sounds like a really great story! This week I’m featuring “To Wager Her Heart”. I really enjoyed reading this latest book from Tamera Alexander. I hope you get to check it out!
Have a wonderful weekend, happy Friday!
This looks like a great book! Happy Friday!
I like that front cover. 🙂
Now that I have a bookshelf within reach of my desk, I’m grabbing one I hope to read this year.
“Romulus White stood motionless in the crowded ballroom, staring at a woman he’d once longed for more than his next breath of air.”

Rollerblades in an Amish novel? I wasn’t expecting that!
I’m sharing the first line from The Space Between Words on my website. I hope you stop by and check it out.
I love Kathleen’s books. And it always helps to havevsunflowers on the cover
Not a first line I was expecting, I do not typically think ‘roller blades’ when coupled with the word ‘Amish’. Happy Reading!
I know! It is definitely a unique line for sure 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
Nice lines! Makes me wonder what the letter said 🙂
