Tuesday Teasers





Each week 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!

Please avoid spoilers!

My teaser sentences come from page 123 of THE GUERNSEY LITERARY and POTATO PEEL PIE SOCIETY by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.


It was so fast - windows all over Guernsey shook and rattled from the explosions in France, and once the coast of France was gone, it was plain as day that England could not use up her men and ships to defend us. They needed to save them for when their own invasion began in earnest. So we were left to ourselves.


This from a letter written describing how it was to be in Guernsey in the Spring of 1940 while Hilter was moving through Europe 'like a hot knife through butter'.
(I know!! That's 3 sentences - but I couldn't leave the last one out!)
