Teaser Tuesday (on Monday)

Posted on

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 Teaser Tuesdays  participants can add the book to their To Read Lists if they like your teasers!

The Rise and Fall of Jesse James by Robertus Love was published in 1925; my copy was re-published in 1990.

It’s an amazing fact that both of the Jameses married, and married well, in the very midst of their careers of outlawry.  Each became the husband of a handsome young woman of irreproachable moral character.

  1. That is interesting. I bet this book is really fascinating. Jesse James is one of those people who just grab my imagination

  2. Quite true. I often wondered why their wives stayed, or for that matter chose to marry the brothers. Sounds like a good book. My TT:

  3. Gosh, I don’t remember either of them having wives at all in the Brad Pitt/Casey Affleck movie… terrible how cinema ends up defining our memory for us! :/
