Teaser Tuesday #42

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.
The Distant Hours by Kate Morton

"It all started with a letter. A letter that had been lost a long time, waiting out half a century in a forgotten postal bag in the dim attic of a nondescript house in Bermondsey.  I think about it sometimes, that mailbag: of the hundreds of love letters, grocery bills, birthday cards, notes from children to their parents, that lay together, swelling and sighing as their thwarted messages whispered in the dark." (page 7)

*I've read so many good reviews about this book and despite the enormous size, I am excited to read it. I only started it the other day, but I think this book will be the perfect break from all the young adult literature I've been reading lately.  I have a feeling that this one will take me awhile to get through though!


  1. Oooo sounds lovely and like it transports the reader to another time :)

  2. Lots of teasers from this one today and they are all beautiful! This book is sitting on my TBR shelf. I need to hurry up and read it! Here's my Teaser from Firelight. And I've got a big giveaway, too!

  3. I never heard of this book before, but from that teaser it sounds like a pretty good book. I'll be looking forward to your review on this one.

  4. I love your teaser, thanks for sharing it with us, Christina. It makes me want to add the book to my wish-list.

    I have never read anything by Morton but I do own one of her books :)

  5. my mom was telling me about this book, she really wants to read it. she loved the author's previous book.

  6. Thanks for visiting my teaser! I'm really enjoying this one!
