Teaser Tuesdays 6.29.10


Teaser Tuesdays is an interesting, fun, bookish meme, hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.

My Teaser:

'I believe I have been able to get this far without further damage to my own emotional, mental and physical condition because of my faith in God, something I understood even as a very young child - something that, though it was not taught to me or my siblings, and I had never attended church, I just "knew". And part of what came with that knowing, that God was and would always be there, was the inherent understanding that, with faith, came the absence of blame - not acceptance - just the blessed comprehension that it was never my place to judge or blame, despite even the worst of the horrors that I went through.'

I Will Not Be Silent by April Maley (p.22)


Anyone can play along! If you'd like to participate, 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!

*And, finally, don't forget to link your post to MizB's at
Should Be Reading. If you don't have a blog, simply share your "teasers" in a comment.

  3. "He'll be back," she said to no one except herself. "Couples take breaks sometimes. It will all be okay." She had to figure out how to fix it, what needed to be done. She went to the closet and grabbed the vacuum and dragged it into the living room and turned it on. The sound drowned out the voices in her head and the erratic beating of her heart.
