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!
They thought if a girl had a ring on her finger she was married, but it is easy as pie for a girl to borrow a ring from a friend or even from her mother, painful as that would be for the mother, or a gold-plated ring from the five-and-dime, and sterling silver rings look like platinum or white gold but a sharp eye can tell silver rings from platinum rings because cheap silver leaves a smudge on the finger and you can tell when you are washing a patient. These rings you can buy at places are also worn by girls who check into hotels with men or as a protection from mashers who happen to be sitting and watching at nearby tables.
