Teaser Tuesday–Gilead by Marilynne Robinson

A fun new meme!


# Grab your current read.
# Let the book fall open to a random page.
# Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
# You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
# Please avoid spoilers!

From Gilead by Marilynne Robinson. I chose 3 sentences to complete the paragraph.

“He just sat there for a while, and then he said, ‘A friend of mine–no, not a friend, a man I met in Tennessee–had heard about this town, and he had also heard of your grandfather. He told me some stories about the old days in Kansas that his father had told him. He said that during the Civil War Iowa had a colored regiment.'”

I’m actually reading Home for a review I’ll be publishing later this year, but the publishers ask that all quotes be checked against the final version so it’s not a good source for something like this. But Gilead is sitting right underneath, along with Housekeeping. I’ll be rereading both to prep for my review. Fun!
