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!
From page 243 of The Poisonwood Bible, by Barbara Kingsolver:
She didn’t speak to him directly; it was more like she was talking straight to God, or the air, or the lizards who’d paused halfway up the walls, and if father should overhear her, that was his nickel. She declared she was taking us out of here as soon as she found the way to do it.
I’m almost finished with this amazing book. I cannot believe I didn’t read it sooner.

I felt just the same when I first read The Poisonwood Bible! How did it hide from me for so many years?
I didn’t expect to like Poisonwood Bible as much as I did, but it was so complex and richly satisfying in many ways.
Thanks for your very insightful comment on my post today ~ I’m glad to meet you 🙂
Jenny, I know in my case I avoided it for some reason, but for the life of me I will never know why. What was I thinking?
Becca, it was so interesting you posed that question, because I do spend much time considering it. Thanks for posting it, and for stopping by! 🙂
