‘A Mother’s Wish’ by Dilly Court

So as not to show any spoilers I have not included a synopsis, however, if you want to find out more about the story, just click on the book image.

If you don’t really want to read any major spoilers, then you can tease yourself a little more, by reading the first few lines of the story … here.

“I was happily married,” Effie said hastily. “I loved my husband and it broke my heart when he died, but at least I have Georgie to remind me of him.” She laid him back on the bed. “The thought of losing him is terrifying. I can’t imagine my life without him.”

Nellie thrust a cup of tea into her hands. “No need to talk like that. He’s a sturdy little fellow and no mistake. Drink this and have a bite to eat, but don’t think I’m going to wait on you hand and foot because I ain’t. I got enough to do keeping me eye on the master without acting like a lady’s maid.”

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by … MizB of ‘Should Be Reading’.

Anyone can take part, by just doing the following:

Grab your current read.

Open to a random page.

  1. Share a couple of  “teaser” sentences, from somewhere on that page.
  2. Be careful not to share “spoiler” sentences.
  3. Remember to share the title and author too.
  4. Head on over to ‘should be reading’ and leave a link to your post, so that others can share it and you can share other people’s.

It would be great if you then decided to leave a comment for MizB, as we all like to receive them and are interested in sharing your thoughts.

This book is one which has been on the shelf in my own persnal library for some time and was originally a charity shop purchase.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
