Teaser Tuesday #39

This is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

  • Grab your read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title and the author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers.

Cate of the Lost Colony by Lisa Klien

"At a young age I learned how quickly one's fortunes can change, a truth that never betrayed me.  One day I was the beloved daughter of a Hampshire gentleman who had been chosen to serve the queen.  He was killed fighting in the Netherlands and at once I was an orphan."  (ARC page 3)
*I've been reading a lot of historical fiction lately, which is a nice break from my usual paranormal/fantasy books.  I just started Cate of the Lost Colony, but I am already enjoying it. I really like Klien's writing style."
