Teaser Tuesday 5.3.11

Today I'm excited to share my teasers from a gem of a debut novel called WHEN GOD WAS A RABBIT by Sarah Winman. I'm currently reading this book for a TLC Book Tour later this month and with every chapter it is becoming more and more endearing to me.

WHEN GOD WAS A RABBIT is the coming-of-age story of Elly, a girl we first meet when she is a little girl of 5 or 6 in England, living with her loving parents and older brother, Joe, with whom she shares an incredible bond. It's also a story of friendship, loyalty and love. The teasers I've chosen to share with you today represent the lovely writing style of Sarah Winman that I am thoroughly enjoying.

My Teasers -

Arthur and Ginger were inseparable when they got together. They had first met years ago on the London scene when their faces were smooth and devoid of experience, and had ended up sharing many things, including a flat in Bayswater and a ballet dancer called Robin. Their banter was rich and comfortable, their teasing intimate and profound, their "I love you" without the use of those startling words. ~ page 137

Be sure to check out all the stops on the book tour from TLC Book Tours that begin on May 16th. Click here for a complete schedule. I'm not yet finished reading it but I'm a fan already. The tour stops at Books and Cooks on May 26th, so please stop back by for my full review then.
