First Line Friday #40

The book I'm featuring this week is a novel by Kit Morgan, "The Purchased Bride." I give this sweet and enjoyable short story 5 stars. The characters are well written.Lillie is found by Jess in a barn after running away from her father. While helping her, Jess falls in love. Lillie is afraid his feelings will change once he discovers her secret. Lillie's father said she was useless because of it.

The Jones ranch, outside Morgan's Crossing, Montana, June 1890

"Jess Jones from Clear Creek, Oregon was the spitting image of his father Ryder. Everyone thought so, and everyone commented on it. By his seventeenth birthday, Jess had gotten tired of hearing it."
