Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
"I imagine he'd had a bad experience on a plane back in the war, but when I asked him about it, all he'd say was he had a friend once who wanted to fly, and when he tried, his friend, him, he fell to earth.
Old men speak in riddles, nieces, but if you listen carefully, they might have something important to tell you."
From Through Black Spruce, by Joseph Boyden
I found this book when I was wandering through the bookstore yesterday. Despite never having heard of it, or the author, I bought it, which turned out to be a very good thing. I am loving this book!
