Tuesday Teasers: "Promises to Keep" and "Outlaw Platoon"


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should  Be Reading. Anyone can play along, so I thought  I  would play for fun! Just do the following
  • Grab your current 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 author, too, so that other TT participants can  add the book to their TBR  Lists  if they  like your teaser.   
Karen's:
Our eyes locked, and I couldn't stop my own tears. I wanted to cry out, Daddy! Tell Mom you'll change. Just promise you'll stop drinking, and maybe Mom will stay!
From page 37 of Promises to Keep by Ann Tatlock

Gerard's:
That power comes only from their minds, their hearts, not from discipline or devotion to army regulations. When death lurks, nothing else matters but that bond of trust, or lack thereof, between soldier and leader.
From page 89 of Outlaw Platoon by Sean Parnell

Happy Reading! We are donating 50 cents for each legitimate comment we receive on all our blogs during April to Paralyzed Veterans of America.

  9. Having spent the night on Wikiquote with my brother, the latter teaser definitely sounded in the form of strong speeches. Neat stuff.
