Teaser Tuesday

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 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.”
