Teaser Tuesday: Matrimony

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly event hosted by MizzB at Should Be Reading 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!

I’m sharing two sentences from the novel MATRIMONY by Joshua Henkin, a book I’ve just started reading.

She turned her mother’s hospital room into a shrine. She unplugged the lamps and lit candles and incense and put on tapes of Native American oboe music and covered the walls with photos of the family. ~page 86

Also, check back later this month when I'll be hosting a giveaway of MATRIMONY! I'll have more details later!


  1. That is a very emotional one. I've been trying to win this one, it sounds like a very good book!

  2. Wow - that is a pretty emotional teaser. Very touching.

    Here's my Teaser!


  3. It shows the desperation when a loved one is so sick. Mia wanted to comfort her mother ... that shower scene is heartbreaking, isn't it?!

  4. I love seeing teasers from books that I have already read. I don't remember this sentence though.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I look forward to hearing from you again soon!
