Teaser Tuesday

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 sentences are from the book Bending Toward the Sun: A Mother and Daughter Memoir
by Leslie Gilbert-Lurie page 200:

"Having long known that most of Mom's family were murdered as a result of an evil German leader, and later coming to suspect that the leaders of many nations, including my own, sat passively by and tolerated the genocide, I never trusted that authority figures would protect me or do what was best. If adults were so wise or capable, why hadn't they spoken up all over the world?
