Teaser Tuesdays (10) September 20

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!

Beneath the realistic face she showed the world, there lurked a mushy center of romanticism. She blamed this on an early addiction to the Brontës, which gave her the unrealistic expectation that there was a man wandering the world who would become attached to her with a fervent, though preferably not doomed, devotion. All her life she'd kept an eye our for her Heathcliff, her Rochester, a man who would be able to hear her heart's desire if she opened the window and called his name on a stormy night. 
Instead, she'd been sent Ben, who a lot of the time didn't hear her when she said something from across the living room. 
Wherever Grace is Needed by Elizabeth Bass, page 18. 


  1. Oo; this sounds like a good one! (I haven't heard much about this book; but you've got a great teaser!) I love the bit of blaming her romanticism on keeping an eye open for her own Heathcliff!

  2. I haven't heard of this book before!
    Love the cover, sounds really good =)

  3. I read it... it's wonderful!


Thank you for your comment! I really appreciate it!
