My website is http://bamajr.com. My Front Page displays my Latest Posts. The current theme is a very basic child theme, providing only small customizations to the basic Genesis Framework layout.
I have a specific visual idea, which I'm having trouble implementing. I want the text, to the right of my featured image and below the stars (ratings) to only display a specific number of lines, instead of number of words/characters.

Sometimes, the fifth line only contains:
I'm trying to find a way, to only display four lines of text total, no more and no less. I don't care how many words/characters are shown in those four lines. I just do not want these "summaries" to ever wrap to a fifth line.
Does anyone know of built-in way (filter or something) to implement this?
If not, does anyone have any suggestion as to how to achieve this?

Use the content rather than excerpt in the Content Archives settings and use the same featured image size on all so that way you can set the character limit to 4 lines only.
