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!
If you pretend things are ordinary, maybe for a few minutes they will be. And sometimes, sometimes, and this is both scary and exhilarating, it works.
Page 4, A Gift for My Sister by Ann Pearlman
Ann Pearlman’s The Christmas Cookie Club enthralled readers everywhere with a heartwarming and touching story about the power of female friendship. Now, in A Gift for My Sister, she once again explores the depth of the human heart, and this time it’s through the eyes of two sisters. Tara and Sky share a mother, but aside from that they seem to differ in almost every way. When a series of tragedies strikes, they must somehow come together in the face of heartbreak, dashed hopes, and demons of the past. The journey they embark on forces each woman to take a walk in the other’s shoes and examine what sisterhood really means to them. It’s a long road to understanding, and everyone who knows them hopes these two sisters can find a way back to each other.
I don’t normally read contemporary novels, however I do enjoy authors like Jodi Picoult. And I am now a fan of Ann Pearlman, because this one has proven thus far to be captivating and amazing. The funny thing is, I didn’t even mean to start this book yet…I just opened it to skim the first couple of pages and I was completely sucked in!
What’s teasing YOU this week?
