Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
- 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!
I read Lizzie by Frank Spiering several years ago (1984 to be exact), but picked it up again recently. An aside: Lizzie Borden is in my Borden lineage.
“She and her sister, Emma, had been overwhelmed by their father’s sudden betrayal. Behind their backs he had given his interest in a house he owned on Fourth Street to his wife’s sister Sarah Whitehead.”
