Welcome to Teaser Tuesdays, our weekly bookish meme hosted by Miz B, at Should Be Reading.
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 excerpting from my current read, Waiting for Spring, by R. J. Keller—an ARC from the Amazon Vine program.
A recently divorced woman trudges out of one small, Maine town and into an even smaller one, hoping to escape her pain. Instead she finds herself surrounded by people who are trudging on, just like her. Waiting for things to get better. Waiting for spring. Waiting For Spring takes readers beyond the lighthouses and rocky beaches tourists visit and drops them instead into a rural Maine town that is filled with displaced factory workers who struggle with poverty and loss, yet push onward with stubbornness and humor.
Teaser: The first question people insist on asking a new acquaintance is: What do you do for a living? I hated that. Insecurity, probably, because I’m not a lawyer or a doctor or any of those other professions that make people say, Oh…in that reverent, awestruck way. p. 18
So that’s it…so far, I’m really enjoying this read, and the MC has left her old town and is settling into a new one. She has left behind pain, loss, and secrets.
What are you sharing today? I hope you’ll stop by….
