I stood at my bookshelves for a while, deciding which book to pull for this First Line Friday. I landed on Cathy Gohlke's Promise Me This which is a Titanic and WWI story. This one I got through Tyndale Rewards program (basically, you earn points then spend them on books--if you sign up with my link, they'll give you a bonus 25 points!). You may read my full review of the book here. For now, I'll just share the first line.
"The great ship returned late from her sea trials beyond
the shores of Carrickfergus, needing only her sea papers,
a last-minute load of supplies, and the Belfast mail
before racing to Southampton."
(Promise Me This by Cath Gohlke)
