Teaser Tuesday - Dec 8

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!
We didn't speak for some time.
'There's a couple of details here might interest you,' I said and pointed to the falling man.
From J L Carr's A Month in the Country- a novella short but very thought provoking. Telling of a WWI survivor who goes to a country village to restore a medieval wall painting. A slow tale of 80 pages wonderful details - the organ buying trip and other quotes like this:
If I’d stayed there, would I always have been happy? No, I suppose not. People move away, grow older, die, and the bright belief that there will be another marvellous thing around each corner fades. It is now or never; we must snatch at happiness as it flies.
There's a review here with lots of insights. I've read it at a rate of about 2 pages an evening slow but enjoying and savouring the details! The author grew up in Castleford which was of some interest to this household!
