Teaser Tuesday


TEASER TUESDAYS, a weekly bookish meme hosted by Should Be Reading asks you to:
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!           

My teasers:
"Them German soldiers was as hungry as we was-with bloated bellies and no body warmth from food.
Well, I was tired to death of boiled potatoes and turnips, and I would have soon turned up my toes and died, when the Vega came into our port."
p. 146 The Guernsey Literary Potato Peel Society by Mary Ann Shaffer      and Annie Barrows
