First Line Friday- A Desperate Hope by Elizabeth Camden

Twelve Years Later

News York City, August 1908

“Please, Eloise, I need your help.”

Eloise Drake glanced up from her tax schedules. She’d only been an accountant for the State Water Board for two months, but her coworkers already depended on her, and it felt good to be needed.

If someone has a math question, they wouldn’t come to me, but Eloise is always ready to help with her warm heart and quick mind!

This was a wonderful conclusion to Mrs. Camden’s “Empire State” series!

I’m not going to share anything else about the book today, but you can watch for my review on Monday.

Now grab the book nearest to you or the one you’re reading and comment with the first line. Then head to HoardingBooks for more participants in First Line Friday’s.

    Happy Friday! My first line is from “Remember Me” by Marion Ueckermann:

    “Seated cross-legged on the floor of her bedroom with her two best friends, Clarise Aylward leaned forward and lit the candles on the birthday cake her mom had made for them.
