Teaser Tuesdays (6)

Happy Tuesday everyone! This weeks teasers come from Robin Oliveira's Civil War epic, My Name is Mary Sutter.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! 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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teasers:

"By the thousands, the wounded lay on the ground and thought, This thirst is not thirst. This pain is not pain. This world is not being rent in two.
That howling is only a whisper. That screech is just a murmur. That explosion is nothing but a sigh. That musket fire is but a rustle.
I am not here. We are not here. Armies are not here. The country is not depending on this moment.
Battles are conversations. An exchange. A dialogue.
None of this is true." (332)

--My Name is Mary Sutter by Robin Oliveira.

A lot of violence in this teaser, but still a little poetic. Odd.

Andrea: It was a great read! Thanks so much for following. :)

Storytreasury: That's how much of the book was... so filled with the violence of the Civil War, but still beautifully written. :)
