Teaser Tuesdays (13)

Happy Tuesday everyone! This week's teasers come from Robert Hick's Widow of the South, a novel of the American Civil War.

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:

"He knew he had just killed, and he detected a wistful sadness floating inside him, but no regret about it. This is the way of things now, he repeated again to himself. But why had the boy killed her?" (226)

--The Widow of the South by Robert Hicks

That is such a sad teaser, and it makes me wonder what happened. Now I might just have to read the book to find out.
