Tuesday Teasers










MizB of Should Be Reading hosts the Teaser Tuesdays weekly event

Here are the rules:

* Grab your current read

* Let the book fall open to a random page

* Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12

*You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

* Please avoid spoilers!

"Was it some form of payback---"gotcha"--for the person she no longer was, the mother Vincent had endured after the kidnapping, the skeletal scaffolding of a human being who lived years, woke and slept in the same clothes until Pat ran a bath and led her to it?  As Candy use to say, the answer was usually the question."
 
*** I'm still reading,  A Change of Altitude; Anita Shreve, last week's Tuesday Teaser, but it's slow going for me :(

  2. We are driving home in the boreal forest that wraps itself like an immense muffler around the shoulders of North America....The ground of whatever I was or would be, root and spirit. ~Rudy Wiebe, Of This Earth

  7. I'm not familiar with this author or book, but it sounds intriguing. Love this part: "the answer was usually the question."
