Line by Line by Jennifer Delamere

Years of hard work enabled Douglas Shaw to escape a life of desperate poverty--and now he's determined to marry into high society to prevent reliving his old circumstances. But when Alice McNeil, an unconventional telegrapher at his firm, raises the ire of a vindictive co-worker, he must choose between rescuing her reputation and the future he's always planned.


I was thrilled when I seen this book! I knew I had to read it!
I like how she's added a bit of mystery. Just enough to keep your attention and of course I was hooked!
It was so good! I just finished it here at 5 am. I couldn't wait to see how it ended. I wasn't disappointed.
I learned a lot from the descriptive passages about telegraphy. I could imagine myself sitting there doing that. I think it would be an interesting job.
There were a few quotes throughout the book but this one was my favorite quote from the book " As our great Scottish poet once said " The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry." " So what do we do"? " Why make new plans of course"! As the little poem says, our little nest has been turned out, we shall seek out other pastures
How true this is! Believe me it's happened to me more than once and I'm sure it will again but I'll just have to pick myself back up and keep going. They usually work out for the best in the end.
Life is ever changing and I don't believe that it's supposed to stay the same! I think it would be very boring if it did! When one door shuts another opens just as God intended.
You see, the heart is a very tricky organ in my opinion. It can do some very weird things to your mind. 
Alice and Douglas were perfect examples. I grew to love them both while reading this wonderful tale about telegraphy. I even found myself rooting for them.
loved both individuals as they discovered what life had to offer them. Life does offer a lot! You just have to know the exact time when to grab it. That's what I consider a challenge! 
I even found myself snickering in some spots! In my mind I could actually see some of Alice's expressions. They were priceless!! She quickly because my favorite! She's a woman before her time!
Douglas is handsome inside and outside. Not too many men are like him. "Sigh"
As I kept reading this book a supporting character kept jumping out at me. Miss Templeton. She stood out because she reminded me of a few teachers in my life who've had a good impact on my life just like Alice.
It's where my love of reading and music came from.
One other verse jumped out at me and made me think about it was Brethern this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things that are before.
The word of God applies as much to us today as it did when time began. It never changes. God loves us yesterday, today and tomorrow.
I don't know where I'd be without Him. His love and Mercy knows no bounds and I'm forever grateful.
This author does a great job with her stories. I was so wrapped up in this story it was over before I knew it! I was sad to see it end!
I was very happy to have the opportunity to read Line by Line. It has so much to offer!
I really liked the title of the book. Very catchy!! It caught my eye and my hope is that it will yours too!
Five stars hands down!
I very highly recommend this book! I believe you will love Alice and Douglas as much as I did!
I will be adding this to my keeper shelf!
My thanks to Netgalley and the author for a copy of this book. I was NOT required to write a positive review and all opinions are my own
