Tuesday Teaser: Nov. 17, 2009

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly event hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
Here is how it works:
Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share two (2 or 3) “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 others can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My teaser quote for this week comes from Across the Endless River by Thad Carhart.

Paul sounded weary, and it occurred to Baptiste that he wasn't happy about returning home after his North American adventure. Fatigue from the voyage was surely catching up to both of them as they entered the outlying districts to the northwest of the capital. Tired as he was, though, Baptiste could hardly contain the excitement he felt at the prospect of reaching Paris, the place whose name in St. Louis meant a kind of earthly heaven.

To this I say: God bless the authors who write long sentences where only 3 are needed to complete a paragraph, therefore a whole thought! (Okay the early 1800's language of the book might be catching up to me, lol)

I hope you emjoyed my teaser;-)

Great teaser! And that's exactly how I feel about Paris, too - "a kind of earthly heaven" is so right!

Jennifer- I wasn't really expecting to like it as much as I have! I hope you enjoy when you get the chance to read it.

I have to agree with you on the long sentences. There are times when my teaser of 2 sentences isn't enough because there is barely a thought there to give anyone an idea of what is going on.

Great teaser!

If you would like to stop by I have my teaser up...
