Teaser Tuesday - 26 October

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!
Reading is a bit slow and hard work at the moment so I'm still in the same book as a fortnight ago!
With her erratic programme and the seasonal wandering of some families, it wasn't surprising to get visits like that of Gheitha, who arrived and filled the clinic one day with her beautiful brood of ragged coffee-cup-eyed children. Their ages ranged from three months to about eight years.
(the children are called Gasaam, Geseem, Geseema, Baseema and Basaama).. coffee-cup-eyed.. what a vision!
From Marguerite van Geldermalsen's "Married to a Bedouin" her tale of marriage to, and life among, the Bedouin living at Petra.

Fine teaser. This sounds like a really intriguing book. And yes, that's a wonderful image. But those names - they're so similar. I wonder if it ever becomes confusing for them.
