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

‘Isabella Rockwell’s War’ by Hannah Parry

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, or to read more about both book and author go here

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 have literally only read the first couple of pages from the book, so my ‘teaser’ page is completely random and I have no idea at all about where we are in the storyline, although I suspect that we are no longer in India, where the story begins!

At dusk, Isabella was back in the yellow and white bedroom, resting in an easy chair. The lanterns had been lit and gave a soft pink glow and the fire hissed and crackled, sending shadows up the heavy satin curtains.

“Ma’am if you please, the young man your miss was with. He’s brought something for her. He won’t leave it with the kitchen staff. Insists on giving it to her himself. Wants to see she’s all right. He’s in the servants’ dining room.”

Paperback copy page 125.

2015 Image Button For Teaser Tuesday Meme

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.

  1. Open to a random page.
  2. Share a couple of  “teaser” sentences, from somewhere on that page.
  3. Be careful not to share “spoiler” sentences.
  4. Remember to share the title and author too.
  5. 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.

As this was an author invitation to read and review, a beautiful signed  and dedicated paperback copy of ‘Isabella Rockwell’s War’, was gifted to me free of charge, by its author.

This will in no way influence any comments I may express about the book, in any blog articles I may post. Any thoughts or comments will be my own personal opinion and I am in no way being monetarily compensated for this, or any other article.

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'.
