Teaser Tuesday-Jan. 27



Check out Teaser Tuesdays from Should Be Reading. TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:


Grab your current read.Let the book fall open to a random page.

Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.

You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

Please avoid spoilers!

My teaser is from The Triumph of Deborah by Eva Etzioni-Halevy:

"Your disobedience exceeds what is permissible. You bear the mark of a rebellious wife, and I shall not keep such a one in my home."

pg 47

Ha, I bet quite a few women "bear the mark of a rebellious wife" in this day and age!

They're probably better off not living in the same house!
