Hello and good morning!
Welcome to First Line Fridays, hosted by Hoarding Books!
Today’s first line comes from one of the books I’m currently reading. A huge thank you goes to Beth from Faithfully Bookish for lending me her copy. I just started it the other night and I’m loving it!
The book I’m featuring is:
A Twist of Faith by Pepper D. Basham
About the Book:
Will a wager against her future steal her chance at true love?
Dr. Adelina Roseland has worked ten years in research as an accent reduction specialist to attain her dream job. But a secret wager to transform Appalachian cattle farmer Reese Mitchell into corporate material challenges Adelina in ways she never expected, threatening her new position.
For one, Adelina didn’t plan for the faith and friction of Reese or the unexpected influence of his chaotic family. Now, drawn into a culture she’d tried to forget, Adelina finds the warmth of family, the hope of faith, and the joy of love melting away the deep wounds of her past.
But when Reese discovers that he’s a pawn in her climb up the academic ladder, will he forgive Adelina’s deceit or will their miscommunication end in two broken lives?
And the first line is:
“Remember that you are a human being with a soul and the divine gift of articulate speech: that your native language is the language of Shakespear and Milton and The Bible; and don’t sit there crooning like a bilious piegon.”
(Phymalion, Act 1)
PHD was not supposed to smell like this.
