Tuesday Teasers


Miz B and Teaser Tuesdays asks you to:
Grab your current read. Let the book fall open to a random page.
 
 
Share with us two (2) 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!



(p. 9)...Two years after our parents' death, however, my brother announced at dinner one evening his engagement to the daughter of one of our late father's solicitor friends.  We kissed and congratulated John, and Margaret played a celebratory waltz on the piano. But in bed that night I wept, as I suspected my sisters did as well, for our London lives as we knew them were over.

Feel free to grab the logo and do your own Tuesday Teaser.
