Hello and good morning!
Welcome to First Line Fridays, hosted by Hoarding Books!
Happy belated Memorial Day! I hope everyone’s day was splendid. The rain held out for a good part of the day which allowed me to be able to spend the day at SeaWorld with my family. They have a super cool deal going on for veterans right now. Veterans can go to the parks for FREE as well as up to three guests until July fourth. Busch Gardens has the same deal going on right now too.
On a side note, it has been raining every single day for over two weeks and I really miss the sun. I apologize for not participating in last week’s First Line Fridays. Every time I would go to write the post, a thunderstorm would happen and I don’t trust keeping my computer plugged in while a storm is happening. It was the perfect weather to curl up with a good book or two so I accomplished finishing a lot of books this week though.
In fact, the book I’m featuring this week is one that I’ve recently finished.
The book I’m featuring is:

About the Book
(taken from the back of the book)
On the day of a late spring storm, in Chicago, Autumn Manning boarded an “L” train. A bomb explodes, killing everyone in the train car except for Autumn—the sole survivor. A year has passed and Autumn suffocates under a blanket of what ifs and the pressing desire to bring the victims back to life, every day, if only for her. She doesn’t want their stories to be forgotten. She wants to undo what cannot be undone. An unexpected ally joins her efforts, also seeking answers and trying to find a way to stumble ahead.
But one victim’s husband, Paul Elliott, prays to let the dead—and their secrets—rest in peace, undisturbed and unable to hurt his loved ones.
Caught between loss and hope, these restless souls must release the past to embrace a sovereign God. Continue reading

If you’re looking for a book that contains real characters and real stories, then perhaps this book is for you. If you’re looking for a light read, this won’t be one of those. You will find yourself crying, laughing, and overjoyed all at the same time. God has His hand all throughout the book even when it seems like there is hope. Life won’t be easy and their problems will not go away overnight, but they know that there is hope that there will be healing. It’s a wonderful read that you won’t be able to put down. I felt as if I was right there with Gracie and Carmen as they shared their stories. Continue reading
