Teaser Tuesday: 9-22-2009


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!




Soon there is nothing here at all but a pile of rubble and a startling, wide-open space where just moments ago a house still stood. It happened so fast that we are all momentarily stunned into silence. I try to picture what might come next, but instead what I see is the stark, inevitable truth of time; what I hear is the silence of all the moments that have ended. (p79, The Gift of an Ordinary Day by Katrina Kenison - ARC)
