Teaser Tuesday -18 May



Teaser Tuesday

The rules are:
  • 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 and author 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!
Margaret's whole soul rose up against him while he reasoned in this way - as if commerce were everything and humanity nothing. She could hardly thank him for the individual kindness, which had brought him that very evening to to offer her - for the delicacy which made him understand that he must offer her privately - every convenience for illness that his own wealth or his mother's foresight had caused them to accumulate in their household, and which, as he learnt from Dr Donaldson, Mrs Hale might possibly require.
Another chunk, as last week, from Gaskell's North and South - our book group book of the month. I'm enjoying this more than I thought!

What a convoluted sentence! My Tuesday Teaser is from Claire de Lune by Christine Johnson.

That's a fine teaser! I've started several of Gaskell's books, but always seem to put them aside after just a few pages. They always sound so interesting, but I guess I need something like a book club to keep me reading. Glad you're enjoying this one.

After the first sentence I was thinking 'a nice clear teaser' but that second sentence.... I found that 'North and South' only started to engage me when they moved from the South to the industrial North
