First Line Friday

First Line Friday Amish Style!

Hello, and welcome to another addition of First Line Friday! This weekend is Mother’s Day, and in honor of that I am posting the first line from the last book in Amy Clipston’s Amish Heirloom series. In this book you learn so much about matriarch Mattie Fisher. She may just be my all time favorite Amish mom 🙂

Okay, here we go. From Amy Clipston’s The Beloved Hope Chest, here is our first line for this week…..

beloved hope chest

Mattie Fisher sat at the table in her large kitchen and fingered the tiny onesie her eldest daughter, Veronica, found in Mattie’s hope chest last year.

Let me just tell you that it has been difficult for me to get through this series! Every single book has been wonderful, and I felt as if I liked each story better than the last. But what really got me was the story behind Mattie’s hope chest. I couldn’t wait for this book to come out so I could finally learn the truth. And it was so worth it!! Make sure you stop back on Sunday and check out my review!

And if you want to learn more about this wonderful book, check it out at Amazon

  1. It’s always bittersweet when a really enjoyable series ends, isn’t it?

    I have the first line from Tamara Leigh’s ‘The Vexing’ on my blog today, but I’m going to leave you with the first line from ‘Still Falling’ by Crystal Walton, releasing on 17th May:

    “On his way to their squad car, NYPD Officer Josh D’Angelo fanned away a sense of dread rising with the steam coming through the subway grates.”

    Happy Friday 🙂

  2. On my blog today I’m sharing a line from Pepper Basham’s book The Thorn Healer. I wanted to share something different in the comment, so I’m choosing a book that my son is currently reading. “As soon as she heard the first pop, pop, pop of the distant muskets, the young mother extinguished the morning fire and closed and barred the cabins shutter.” Abandoned on the Wild Frontier (The Trailblazer books) by: Dave & Neta Jackson Bethany House, 1995

    MOBILE POINT

    She could set fire to the letter in her pocket and it would still be true.

  4. On my blog today is the first line from Irene Hannon’s Sea Rose Lane so I am going to leave the first line from Between the Reins by Liz Isaacson that is releasing on May 16th. “The barn door banged open as Gil, one of the male counselors, burst through it, “Owen, there’s a fight we need your help with.”
