Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted at The Purple Booker.
Anyone can play along by doing 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!
“It was an odd relationship, but then she was an extraordinary woman: a prioress who doubted much of what the church taught; an acclaimed healer who rejected medicine as practised by physicians; and a nun who made enthusiastic love to her man whenever she could get away with it. If I wanted a normal relationship, Merthin told himself, I should have picked a normal girl.”
(~ The World Without End by Ken Follett, Kindle Edition, 2007)
[Note: This is the second instalment of the famous Medieval saga started by The Pillars of the Earth, famously featuring the building of cathedrals. I’ve carefully avoided watching the TV series, to avoided being distracted by historical mistakes and oversight common in similar cases. The book is long, but worth a reading – and, I must say, more for the scenario than the single characters, which I generally didn’t like, with the only exception of Caris, the one lady the quote mentions. Moreover, the depiction of the Black Death is a quite good one – and I’ve read a few of them, real and fictional.]
