Teaser Tuesday - March 4

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!
Yet I knew, as I stood there, that I had, in loving Etna, touched something extraordinary in myself. It was the one occupation that had engaged all of me: my senses, my intellect and my emotions.
Anita Shreve's All He Ever Wanted our book group book of last month. I started this with a particular image of what I thought it was likely to be like 'chick lit' and was pleasantly surprised, though it is an uncomfortable read - a pompous, egotistical man's view of a marriage back in the early years of the 20th century. (Etna is the name of his wife!).
I'm not doing well at tuesday teasers (or blogging) at the moment, let's hope things improve and I find some impetus!
