TUESDAY TEASER

The way to play is to open your book to a random page or wherever your bookmark is, then copy a couple of sentences as a sample of the book you are currently reading.  Participate by leaving a comment; don’t forget to give title and author.

Here is my Tuesday Teaser from The Beekeeper’s Daughter by Santa Montefiore:

“‘Okay, here’s the plan’ he said turning back to her, ‘I’ll go home and attend my brother’s funeral.  Then when I’ve sorted everything out, I’ll send for you.’

Trixie felt the world adjust into sharp focus.  Her nerves tingled as she began to sense everything more intensely… ‘I’ll wait for you then, she replied.'”

Will Jasper return for Trixie, or take over the family business and forget all about her? I picked up this book at the library just because it was in large print and the title was on my TBR list.  Now, I want to read on to find out the answer to the question.

This year (2019) finds me with 50 years of teaching "under my belt." I have taught all levels from pre-K "(library lady" or "book lady"--volunteer) to juniors, seniors, and graduate students enrolled in my Advanced Writing class at the university where I have just completed 30 years. My first paying teaching job was junior high, and I spent 13 years with ages 12-13, the "difficult years." I had some of the "funnest" experiences with this age group. When I was no longer the "young, fun teacher," I taught in an elementary school setting before sixth graders went on to junior high, teaching language arts blocs, an assignment that was a "dream-fit" for me. After completing graduate school in my 40s, I went on to community college, then university teaching. Just as teaching is "in my blood," so is a passion for reading, writing, libraries, and everything bookish. This blog will be open to anyone who loves books, promotes literacy and wants to "come out and play."
