First Line Friday – Isaiah’s Daughter

Winter is FINALLY here in my neck of the woods, and I could not be happier! This Northern girl never gets enough snow here in Kentucky, but this little taste of it still makes my heart smile 🙂  Because if you’re stuck at home by the nasty roads and bitter cold (an introvert’s dream – no peopling required!), that means you probably have more time to READ!!!

One of the books I’m looking forward to reading this weekend is the book I’m featuring here today on First Line Friday!

Today’s first line is from…

Isaiah’s Daughter
by Mesu Andrews

isaiah's daughter


And the first line is….

732 BCE (Spring)
Judean Wilderness

“My friend Yaira said to be brave – but why? Brave or sad, we kept marching.”

I am so excited to read this book, as Isaiah is one of my very favorite books of the Bible to study! And that cover – gorgeous, isn’t it??

  1. What a sad line! Isaiah’s Daughter’s is on my to-read pile, but I’m about to start reading The Boy in the Hoodie, a young adult novel by debut Australian author Catriona McKewon. Here’s the first line:

    Before I met him, there wasn’t much I knew about the boy in the hoodie.He seemed to live above the rules.

  2. I just finished reading this today. Soooooooo good!

    I’m featuring ‘Isaiah’s Daughter’ on my blog, too, but I’ve done a quick edit so that I have the first line from chapter two! Right now. I’m going to share the first line from ‘Fatal Mistake’ by Susan Sleeman:

    “He was coming for her, and he was close.”

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Over on my blog I’m sharing the first line from Heather Day Gilbert’s latest “Guilt by Association” It is the 3rd book in her Murder in the Mountains series. I’ll share here the first line from chapter 4.
    “Without a doubt, the number five trailer is the prettiest place in Scots’ Hollow.”

  4. I love Isaiah’s Daughter!!

    I’m sharing about The Melody of the Soul by Liz Tolsma on my blog today, but I’ll share a first line from a book on my soon-to-read list here.

    Your first thought upon picking up this book is probably: How can a person born without any limbs consider himself to to be the hands and feet of Jesus on this Earth?
    -Be the Hands and Feet: Living Out God’s Love for All His Children by Nick Vujicic

    Happy weekend!

  5. My first paragraph is from Melody of the Soul from Liz Tolsma:

    Anna Zadokova held her mother’s tiny body close. If only she could imprint the feel of her on her skin. She breathed in her scent, a combination of rose water and fried onions. Everything she loved best about her. A light mist dampened them both.

  7. Isaiah’s Daughter is SO good. I read it a few weeks ago and I am still thinking about that book!

    Happy Friday!

    Over on my blog, I am featuring Brett Armstrong’s novel Destitutio Quod Remissio. It’s an interesting read so far. Here I will post the first lines from chapter four of this book.

    “The streets were filled beyond the usual that day, or perhaps it only appeared so to Marcus. The market district was expansive enough to accommodate thousands. Over it looked the tall stone buildings surrounding the huge open Forum that was the city’s center for centuries. All of the grand structures were washed white by the noon’s radiance and loomed large over the transactions of Rome’s citizens.”
