Teaser Tuesdays: July 14, 2009

Miz B and Teaser Tuesdays asks you to: Grab your current read. Let the book fall open to a random page. Share with us two (2) 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!



My teaser comes from The Red Tent by Anita Diamant,  page 65.

“My mother told me that after the birth of her twin sons, she decided to finish with childbearing.  Her breasts were those of an old woman, her belly was slack, and her back ached every morning.”

I’m just starting this book today but I’ve had it in the stack for a year and a half.  I’m really excited to start it.

Any mothers out there care to comment on the teaser??

  1. I did finish childbearing after my twins. They did kill my breasts, back, and my brain! But, I do love them!

  2. Well, I’m not a mother so I certainly can’t comment on the subject of this teaser. But I CAN say that I loved this book and I hope you enjoy it!

  3. It’s been several years since I read this book, but I remember loving it and having some wonderful conversations with my girlfriends about it. As for the teaser, well, those are a few of the reasons I’m hesitant to become a mother 🙂

    (That and that the birthing scene in Sue Miller’s The Senator’s Wife left me scarred for life.)
