Welcome to Teaser Tuesdays, where we share snippets of our current reads, and then visit other bloggers to see what they’re reading. Hosted by Should Be Reading, you can join, too; just read what to do and add your comments and links.
Here’s how it works:
- 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!
Today I’m sharing from a book that has been on my TBR stacks for a very long time. I have several books like that, but they’re gradually moving up to my weekly reads.
Hanna’s Daughters, by Marianne Fredriksson, is a luminous story that follows three generations of Swedish women whose lives are linked through a century of great love and great loss.
Teaser: I am always surprised by women’s compassion, Anna thought. What use is it? There is a better word: empathy. p. 164
I’m eager to really delve into this one, as I love stories about the connections between mothers and daughters.
What did you find this week? I hope you’ll stop by and share.
