Teaser Tuesdays are hosted by Should Be Reading. The rules are as follows:

  • 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!

Here is mine for the day:

I cheated a bit to get a good one. This is a book I have struggled a bit with, but I am finally starting to really enjoy it!

North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell, page 189

"Nay, John, there is no need to be angry. Did she not rush down, and cling to you to save you from danger?"
"She did!" said he. "But, mother," continued he, stopping short in his walk right in front of her, "I dare not hope. I never was faint-hearted before; but I cannot believe such a creature cares for me."
