Welcome to First Line Friday, hosted by Hoarding Books! I have a heartrending, but ultimately healing story for you today: Finding Evergreen by Jennifer Rodewald, which released just yesterday. I’m not going to lie to you; this story hurts. But as I said in my review, “…every time Jennifer Rodewald comes out with a story that’s sure to pummel my heart, I’m right at the head of the line, offering my heart with both hands. Because that restoration at the end is worth every minute of the journey (and the tears) it took to get there.”
~ About the Book ~
Married within a year of meeting, Ethan and Brandi add a foster daughter to their newly established family. Their story is enchanting—inspiring. Except when the fairytale fails. The stresses of unmet expectations and wounds from their pasts knife into their marriage, severing what they believed would be forever.
Hope for a broken marriage. Healing for their wounded spirits. It would take both to find evergreen. Are they brave enough to try?

Brandi’s head throbbed. The hateful words still sizzled in her ears as the front door brushed open.
And if you want more from Finding Evergreen, Courtney over at The Green Mockingbird has the first lines from chapter 1!
Do you have an author you’re always willing to trust with your heart, even when you know it will hurt?
