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!
My Teaser this week is from The Child’s Child by Barbara Vine
‘In my house where your innocent sister lives? Stay here where everybody we know would see your disgrace? I think not.’
Someone must be dead. He went up to his mother, laid his hand on her shoulder and said, ‘Where’s Maud? What’s happened to Maud?’
Reading Barbara Vine is like wrapping up in a quilt and saying a big ahh… I was slightly worried about reading this book being the first published since The Birthday Present in 2008, but it has proved to be a really enjoyable read. The most enjoyable section for me is the historical part which starts in 1929 and continues through the Second World War as this suits Barbara Vine’s instantly recognisable style of writing perfectly.
