Happy First Official Friday of Summer! Here it’s been summer temperatures for awhile, but at least the calendar agrees with them now. Today I am happy to share the first line of the novella I am reading. I like reading novellas, don’t you? I can sit there and typically read them all at once, in a short amount of time, but still feel like I got a good story out of it. Now this one feels a little long for a novella – it is 200 pages according to Amazon, but I think you could probably read it in a few sittings.
Today’s first line comes from a talented young writer who spent 16 years of her life in Papua New Guinea. Now, I have to tell you that I am immediately drawn to her and feel like we have a connection. My church supported missionaries in Papua New Guinea that were there to help translate the Bible for the residents there. I wonder if they knew each other? Sorry, off topic. Where were we? Ah yes, Kara Swanson is the lovely author we are featuring today. Her latest novella The Girl Who Could See is different than anything I’ve read recently, and I enjoyed that tremendously! I hope you’ll give it a try!
On Television crime shows, they never tell you how cold it is.
There you have it guys! And now it’s your turn! Open the book nearest to you and share the first line in the comments! And make sure to check out what my friends are reading this week! Happy Friday!
