Teaser Tuesday (September 30)


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 A Week In Paris by Rachel Hore

A Week in Paris


1961: Born on the day that WW2 broke out, 21-year-old Fay Knox cannot remember her early childhood in London, before she moved to a Norfolk village with her mother, Kitty. Though she has seen a photograph of her father, she does not recall him either. He died, she was told, in an air raid, and their house destroyed along with all their possessions. Why then, on a visit to Paris on tour with her orchestra, does a strange series of events suggest that she spent the war there instead? There is only one clue to follow, an address on the luggage label of an old canvas satchel. But will the truth hurt or heal?
1937: Eugene Knox, a young American doctor, catches sight of 19-year-old Kitty Travers on the day she arrives in Paris, and cannot get her out of his mind. She has come to study the piano at the famed Conservatoire, and lodges at a convent near Notre Dame. Eugene and Kitty will fall in love, marry and have a daughter, but France’s humiliating defeat by Germany is not far behind, and the little family must suffer life under Nazi occupation. Some Parisians keep their heads down and survive, others collaborate with the enemy while others resist. The different actions of Eugene, Kitty and their friends will have devastating consequences that echo down the generations. NetGalley

My Teaser

Everything rang true. But if Mme Ramond was telling the truth, that made her mother dishonest and she didn’t like to think about that. And yet… if her mother was hiding secrets maybe it was for a good reason.
‘I do trust you, yes,’ she said simply.

  1. Cleo – Oh, I do like historical novels like this one! Add in the family secrets, and you’ve got my interest. And you’ve chosen a great snippet as a teaser, too.


  2. Mmm, you picked a good sentence! Intriguing!
    I’ve already posted on my blog for the day, but my Teaser would be from the book I’m currently reading by Gregoire Delacourt ‘On ne voyait que le bonheuer’ (All We Saw Was Happiness) – it’s the story of an insurance broker in his forties and starts (apologies for my clumsy translation):
    ‘A life – and I’m well placed to say so – is worth between 30 and 40 thousand euros… if you’ve been run over. 20-23 thousand if you’re a child. Slightly over a hundred thou is you’re in a plane that crashes you with 227 others.
    How much would our lives be worth?’
