First Line Fridays: Come Back to Me by Jody Hedlund

Happy Friday!

First Line Fridays is hosted by Hoarding Books and participants share the first line from a nearby book.

Today, I'm sharing the first line from Come Back to Me by Jody Hedlund.

"Your father is in a coma."

Come Back to Me just released on Tuesday and my review is in process. For now, check out the book blurb below or read an excerpt on the publisher's website.

What are you reading this weekend? I'd love for you to share your book's first line!

Happy reading!

About the Book:

The ultimate cure that could heal any disease? Crazy.

That's exactly what research scientist Marian Creighton has always believed about her father's quest, even if it does stem from a desire to save her sister Ellen from the genetic disease that stole their mother from them. But when her father falls into a coma after drinking a vial of holy water believed to contain traces of residue from the Tree of Life, Marian must question all of her assumptions. He's left behind tantalizing clues that suggest he's crossed back in time. Insane. Until Marian tests his theories and finds herself in the Middle Ages during a dangerous peasant uprising.

William Durham, a valiant knight comes to Marian's rescue and offers her protection . . . as his wife. The longer Marian stays in the past, the more she cares about William. Can she ever find her father and make it back to the present to heal her sister? And when the time comes to leave, will she want to?

Bestselling author Jody Hedlund is your guide down the twisting waters of time to a volatile era of superstition, revolts, and chivalry in this suspenseful story.

First Line Fridays hosted by Hoarding Books


  1. Hello! 😀 Today on my blog I'm sharing the first line from Summertime Lilies by LM Karen: I'm currently reading The Seat Filler by Sariah Wilson so I'll share a line from there. "I made it to my appointment despite the fact that I was exhausted because I barely slept." Hope you have a great weekend! 😀❤📚

    1. Thanks for sharing! Have a good rest of the weekend!

  2. Happy Friday! My first line is from "Sticks and Stone" by David James Warren:

    "The pieces of two lives sit in my brain like they should fit together, but no matter how hard I press, I can't get them to line up."

    1. What a start! I've read good things about that series, but haven't yet tried it for myself.

  3. Come Back To Me was an unusual and great book!

    My first line is from:
    Along a Storied Trail by Ann Gabhart
    Everybody thought Tansy Calhoun was heartbroken after Jeremy Simpson threw her over for Jolene Hoskins.

  4. I am hearing a lot of great things about this book, I may need to check it out. My first line is: "She'd Run Away. Rather than face him at the altar, she had taken her lady's maid, ordered a carriage and run away." It's from All Arranged by Meredith Resce.
