and
1st Paragraph 1st Chapter - Tuesday Intros
at Diane's Bibliophile by the Sea

Here's mine ~
Iowa, March 1918
"Of all the birthdays Livy could recall, this one would certainly go down as the most memorable - but for all the wrong reasons.
Ironic, she thought, smoothing the skirt of her blue silk taffeta dress for surely the hundredth time.  I always thought turning twenty would be special."

Opening paragraph - HOPE AT DAWN [Of Love & War #1]
by Stacy Henrie
{releasing June 24th}


In a Time of War, Love is the Inspiration.With her brothers away fighting the Great War overseas, Livy Campbell desperately wants to help her family. Her chance comes when she meets a handsome stranger who lands her a job as a teacher in a place far from her parents' farm. But the war casts a long shadow over the German-American town that Livy now calls home—and the darkness will test everything she thought she knew about family and love . . .

A bit of a sad start to her birthday. I do like the setting of the novel.

Kathy Martin said...

Sounds interesting. I don't read much historical fiction. This week my teasers come from The Quick by Lauren Owen and Dark Metropolis by Jaclyn Dolamore. I go from Victorian Vampires to futuristic zombies. Happy reading!

Maya Love said...

Looks like an intriguing historical fiction. I would read on.

Kim@Time2Read said...

What a pretty cover! I'd definitely read on. In fact, I'm adding it to my TBR now!

Today I'm featuring The Vacationers by Emma Straub.

I found my own twentieth birthday rather "un-special", it was just another birthday! This sounds like a really interesting read, I love the idea of Livy wanting to help her family! Thanks for sharing :)
