First Line Friday – Carry Me Home

Happy Friday, reader friends! Ever wanted to visit Australia? Maybe you’ve already had the pleasure and would love to return! Well, I’m giving you the perfect opportunity with today’s novel Carry Me Home by Australian author Dorothy Ademek. Join English bride-to-be Finella Mayfield as she travels to Australia in 1875, anticipating her future as a village preacher’s wife only to have it all unravel once she reaches Melbourne’s shores…

And if that’s not a long enough visit to Australia (because, let’s face it, it’s a pretty great country!), then make sure you pre-order the next book in the series, Carry Me Away, releasing 5 November 2019!

  1. Another book to add to my TBR!
    The first line I’m sharing today is:
    It was not the best hiding spot I had ever found, but it was, thankfully, proving quite effective.
    Secrets and Suitors by Joanna Barker


  2. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Cold Pursuit” by Gayla K. Hiss:

    “Faith Chandler stared at the man walking in the distance.”


  3. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I shared the first line from The Telegraph Proposal by Becca Whitham and Gina Welborn but I’m currently reading Aiming for Love by Mary Connealy so I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (7) here: “Jo turned back to Dave to see him shake his head.” Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time!
