Today I’m joining in the fun by sharing a book for First Line Friday. The deal is we pick up the nearest book (or in my case, the nearest device with an ebook in it) and quote the first line.
I’m sharing the first line from Grace in Deep Waters by Christine Dillon. I’ve included the opening paragraphs from the Prologue to provide context. I wasn’t surprised to read on and learn the prologue is from 1944 when radios were a popular form of both entertainment and news media.
11 November 1944
The radio dominated the room. All gleaming wood and intriguing metal dials.
William zeroed in on it, ignoring all the people, desks, and typewriters crammed into his father’s office. This was the first time he’d ever been allowed here, although Ian, his older brother, was always welcome.#FirstLineFriday – Grace in Deep Waters by Christine Dillon #ContemporaryFiction #NewRelease – via @NarelleAtkins Click To Tweet
Grace in Deep Waters was a July new release. Here’s the book description:
William Macdonald is at the pinnacle of his career. Pastor of a growing megachurch and host of a successful national radio programme. Clever and respected, he’s a man with everything, including a secret. His wife has left him and he can’t risk anyone finding out.
Blanche Macdonald is struggling. Her once rock-solid marriage is showing cracks. She promised to love her husband for better or for worse, but does loving always mean staying? Blanche desires to put God first. Not William. Not her daughter. Not herself.
When is a marriage over? When do you stand and fight?
