Open the book nearest to you and share the first line!
Hello, reader friends! It’s FLF time! Today’s featured book is a captivating time-slip set in WWII Germany and England and modern-day England and America. It is a beautiful, immersive story of love, loss, and belonging.
Catching the Wind by Melanie Dobson
“Maple leaves draped over the tree house window, the silvery fronds linked together like rings of chainmail to protect the boy and girl playing inside.“
Doesn’t that paint a lovely picture across your reader heart?! I’ll have my review up next week over on my blog.
