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 That Dark Remembered Day by Tom Vowler which so far is proving to be another excellent, if very mysterious, read!
A son returns to the small town where he grew up, where his mother still lives and where a terrible event in his childhood changed the lives of almost every person living there. As the story unfolds through the eyes of the son, the mother and finally, the father, the reader experiences the taut build up to one day’s tragic unravelling, and the shock waves that echoed through a once happy family and close-knit community. Will they ever be able to exorcise the damage of that day or do some wounds run too deep? Goodreads
In his mind, he’d held on to the idea of never returning, of keeping the distance between him and the town considerable; his coming back was probably as unpalatable for those who lived her as it was horrifying for him.
His parents’ room was the same as the others, though the graffiti was more profuse. This time he brought himself to enter his sister’s room.
