Happy first Friday of August! This week was pretty normal for me. The most exciting thing was getting fun buttons at work which say “I’m happy to help from 6 feet away!” I smirk every time I see mine (not that anyone can tell from behind my mask).
Today I’m featuring the second book in the Librarians of Willow Hollow series! This one releases on August 17, which is also my first day of school. It’s shaping up to be a busy week. You can read my review of the first book in the series, A Strand of Hope, here.
First Line Friday is a weekly linkup hosted at Hoarding Books. To participate, share the first line of a book of your choice, add the link to the linkup on the host’s page, and check out what others are reading and sharing!
The First Line:
Lillian wandered through the mostly deserted town.
About the Book
Title: I Love to Tell the Story
Author: Faith Blum
Genre: Historical Christian YA/NA Fiction
Synopsis: Bored with her life in Castle Town, Montana, Lillian Sullivan follows her friend’s suggestion and joins the horseback librarian program in rural Kentucky. Not only does she anticipate sharing her love of books, but she also wants to spread the gospel among the mountain people.
However, Willow Hollow presents her with one trouble after another and she struggles to step outside her shyness to share the gospel.
What will it take for Lillian to share her love of the Best Story? Can the power of the gospel overcome the shyness of her own heart?
Why is the town deserted? What does is symbolize? How is the town’s emptiness connected to Lillian’s family and her spiritual life? All of these questions are answered in the story if you read it closely. I loved getting to know Lillian; I can’t wait to share my review of I Love to Tell the Story and read the next book in the series!
How has August started out for you, Readers? If school is a part of your life, what is it looking like this year?
Until the next chapter,
