Teaser Tuesday - 8 February

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!
Yes, I'm still working my way through Alessandro Manzoni's The Betrothed, only 200 pages to go!
And while in certain parts those who were totally abandoned and reduced to extremity were raised up from the ground, brought back to life and given food and lodging for a time, there were a hundred other places where their brothers fell, languished and died without any help or comfort.
All day long a confused murmur of imploring voices could be heard in the streets.
The Thirty Years war and then, the plague, hits Milan!
