Sharing our love for authors, and the stories they are inspired to tell.

‘Daughters Of The House’ by Michele Roberts

So as not to show any spoilers I have not included a synopsis, however, you can find out more about the story by simply clicking on the cover 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

The cemetery was a square plot of ground, enclosed by a high wall with ornamental turrets at the corners. The dead lay inside this fortified enclosure in rows as neat as those in the Martins’ kitchen-garden. They rotted quietly; like the dropped fruit you found hidden under the leaves of the tomato plants.

Teaser Tuesday Button - A Daily Rhythm

 

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by … Jenn at ‘A Daily Rhythm’

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 Jenn, as we all like to receive them and are interested in sharing your thoughts.

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'.
