First Line Fridays #12 – Her Place In Time by Stephenia McGee

Hi Readers, Happy Friday!
I don’t have much time to talk today, but I wanted to show you a book that I just started yesterday and am LOVING so far. I’ve had this book on my TBR list ever since I had the pleasure of meeting Stephania McGee at the CFRR earlier this year. Finally, after three months, I get to read it! (*head smack*) so my First Line Friday quote is from my current Must Read by Stephania McGee, Her Place In Time.

If only leaving her problems behind were as simple as leaving town.

Her Place In Time by Stephenia McGee

This book is a time-travel romance novella and it’s the prequel to The Liberator Series; however, it can definitely be read as a stand alone. Hope you check it out!

From the back cover

Can love offer a new future…in the past?
A mysterious gown, unexpected courage, and a love that transcends time.
Nursing student Lena Lowery faces a grim diagnosis and a dangerous surgery. On the cusp of the life-changing procedure, Lena stays at the Rosswood Plantation Bed and Breakfast for one last weekend with her mother. There in an antique armoire, Lena discovers a Civil War-era gown that holds an unimaginable cure…a trip back in time to when the house served as a hospital.
Confederate Sergeant Caleb Dockery lost his brother, his eye, and nearly his life. Stuck in a makeshift infirmary, he’s counting the days until he can return to duty…and seek revenge. When a stranger appears, he suspects she’s a spy. If he can’t return to duty and find the revenge he craves for his brother’s death, he can serve his country by stopping this traitor. But her nursing skills are saving lives, and her courage and independence stirs his heart. When Lena’s safety is threatened, Caleb must strain the loyalties that bind him or risk losing her forever.
Caught between a future that holds no promises and a past that could offer new life, Lena must face an extraordinary decision. Should she return to her own time where her days are numbered? Or can she and Caleb find a love that stretches across time?

If you like historical romance with a twist, strong female characters, and heroes that transcend eras, you’ll love this journey through time that tests the limits of love.

  1. I LOVED that book! It was my first read by Stephenia too!
    This week on my blog I shared the first line of A Lady’s Maid by Jen Geigle Johnson but it’s also the book I’m about to open up since I just finished Storm Rising by Ronie Kendig 🙂

  2. Happy Friday! I haven’t started this yet, but my first line (well – 2 lines) is from “Margin of Error” by Christy Barritt:

    “Hunger and anger battled inside him like two storm fronts colliding. A violent friction clashed in his very soul.”

  3. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I’m sharing the first line from Cross My Heart by Robin Lee Hatcher: I’m currently reading Ever Faithful by Karen Barnett, so I’ll share the first line from there.

    “Elsie closed her eyes for a moment and breathed in the steamy air, imagining she stood beside Grand Prismatic Spring instead of the massive laundry boiler in the back of the Mammoth Hot Springs Lodge.”

    Hope you have an excellent weekend! 🙂❤📚

  4. Love the cover of Stephenia’s book and the story behind the dress!

    My first line is from Underestimating Miss Cecelia by Carolyn Miller:

    Aynsley Manor, Somerset. June 1918

    “It was, perhaps, the greatest torment to love someone who barely seemed to notice one’s existence.”
    Another wonderful Regency!

    Happy reading!
