TEASER TUESDAYS is hosted by MizB at Should be Reading. The idea is to share a couple of “teaser” sentences from a random page in your current read. Last night I finished Beyond the Glass, by Antonia White. It’s the last book in a series of semi-autobiographical novels set in the World War I era and beyond. In this book, the protagonist Clara is a young woman trying to put a bad marriage behind her. Here’s my teaser:
Isabel strained her ears in vain to catch what was being said the other end. Claude’s almost monosyllabic questions and replies came at long intervals, and gave her little comfort except the knowledge that Clara was there.
