I missed yesterday’s Teaser Tuesday due to another urgent post, but I’d hate for you to miss out!

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page.
  •  You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

“In the after-dinner heat, when the dishes were dried and put away and the greasy sink was shining, Louie slipped down the orchard in her bare brown feet and, opening the unhinged back gate a trifle, looked out into the peaceful street. Just opposite were the little wooden houses of the only two neighbours who were Louie’s friends – the Kydds and the Walkers.”
From Christina Stead’s The Man Who Loved Children (Penguin Modern Classics edition, p104)
