Tuesday Teaser

This meme was originally begun by The Purple Booker.  I discovered it on my blogging friend’s blog, Brainfluff.  Both are worth a look into.

The idea is to select at random a sentence or two that will entice the reader to find out more about the book you are reading and maybe read that book himself/herself.

Today’s Tuesday Teaser is from The Address, a novel about the mysterious stabbing death of the architect of The Dakota, an infamous luxury apartment house in New York City. It comes near the end of the book:

“‘You’re ill, let me help.’ Sara put her arm around the woman, who leaned into her.

‘I feel faint.’

No wonder, returning home to find your husband’s lover hanging about in the children’s nursery.”

It is NOT as it seems at first glance .as you will guess if you know that The woman who almost faints is the architect’s wife, and Sarah is his mistress.

This year marks my fiftieth year in AAUW (American Association of University Women). The Alvin chapter was begun in 1947, and as a new, green teacher to Alvin Independent School District, I joined in 1968. In the 80's we began a book group to share our love of reading, books,and fellowship with other women and girls who loved the same. We resurrected the group on-line in September of 2015. Eventually Powerful Women Readers folded as an on-line book club, but I kept the title and turned it into a blog. (See "Introduction,"first blog). This is my first experience at blogging or publishing anything and is becomes more fun with each blog posted. I am currently teaching as an adjunct at The University of Houston Clear Lake. This makes my 28th year there after three years at Alvin Community College and an almost-twenty year career as a classroom teacher with Alvin Independent School District. Reading and writing are "in my blood" just like teaching is. I hope you enjoy the blog.
