Teaser Tuesdays: 3 This Week


The blasts ripped through the noisy gym.  A hush fell, and for an instant, wide-eyed students turned to stare at one another. 
 From page 8 of The Competition by Marcia Clark.


Benoit's daughter from a short second marriage, Isabelle Renee Benoit, similarly died young, giving fuel to the legend that Benoit labored under a lifelong curse, placed on the family when a slave midwife was forced to leave her own daughter to labor through a deadly breech birth alone so that the midwife could attend to a birth in the Benoit home.  After a long illness and rumored bouts of mental instability, Girard Benoit left his fortune to his household help, rather than to extended family members, in a much-rumored effort to protect them from the curse and thus ransom himself in death.

From page 222, (Loc. 2963 on Kindle)  of The Prayer Box by Lisa Wingate.

When I'm in a particularly negative mood, three thoughts come to me with those phrases:  Faith can be work.  Love can be labor.  Hope can get long.
From page 20 of Children of the Day by Beth Moore.

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 pick two sentences from the book you are reading.

Happy Reading!
