Teaser Tuesday: Ghellow Road

This week I'm taking my teasers from GHELLOW ROAD by T.H. Waters. She calls it a novel, but it is patterned after her own life, growing up with her older brother and their parents while desperately clinging to the hope of having a normal family life.

My teasers -

As I now look back upon those tragic events, I stand astonished at how quickly my young, shattered mind was able to piece itself back together, at least long enough to christen the next chapter of my life. The destruction from within would patently lay in wait amidst a dense cluster of cattails and delicately painted butterflies until the last one migrated southward, never to return again. ~ page 117

Although unsettling at times this book is proving to be hard to put down. I only started it last night and already I'm half-way through it. I'm anxious to get to the end and find out what has happened to this little girl who only wanted to be normal in a family that was anything but.

  6. I have such a sensitivity to young children, I don't know if I could read this. I do hope there is a happily ever after, or a prince charming, or an adopted family...or peace.
    I'm just starting my journey to Narnia as a read-along. :)
