Teaser Tuesdays: The Summer Before the War by Helen Simonson
is hosted by MizB at Books and a Beat. To play along, just do the following:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two “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 list if they like your teaser.
My teaser this week is from page 26 of The Summer Before the War by Helen Simonson:
"Perhaps surgery can be a Sunday hobby, but I assure you poetry is life and death for me, Hugh," said Daniel. "I simply must write. just as you must apparently peer into people's bleeding bodies on the operating table and pickle chicken heads in Aunt Agatha's largest jam jars."
