It’s Tuesday, Where Are You? / Teaser Tuesdays

It’s Tuesday, Where Are You?

I’m at the court of Charles I, observing the shifting fortunes - and the eccentricities - of a gentry family.

The Verneys: A True Story of Love, War, and Madness in Seventeenth-Century England by Adrian Tinniswood

Teaser Tuesdays TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from - that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

What if he talked? Sir Edmund bumped into him toward the end of April, and noticing that he was dressed in his buff coat as though he was preparing to go into action, commented hopefully that “if he does, some lucky bullet may free her of this misfortune.”

From The Verneys: A True Story of Love, War, and Madness in Seventeenth-Century England by Adrian Tinniswood, p. 102.
