Lord, have mercy. Thank goodness Friday is just about here! It's time for another round of #FirstLineFriday, hosted by Hoarding Books.
My line this week comes from such a heart-breaking, but ultimately hopeful, story which sounds strange to say when considering the title. But I promise, it will be worth a read to understand what I mean.
"There was still blood on Sonny's shoes when the detective came to interview him."
I discovered this book two weeks ago via Remembrancy when Suzie posted about it. Something about the story just called to me, and I was so lucky that one of the authors, M. Simone Boyd (who co-wrote the book with her father, Onnie I. Kirk, Jr) offered me a copy. Not even asking for a review, just straight up offered me a copy (no worries, there will be a review!) Despite having my own plate full with research, writing, reading, and raising a human, I plowed through the book in just three days. The ultimate story is of God's love for us and the options He presents us so we can live out our purpose - which because of our free will, we can choose to accept or reject.
Leave a comment or a line of your own, then head over to Hoarding Books to find the other lines waiting for you this week.
