Tuesday Teaser, August 12

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 teaser:

“When I closed my eyes, I saw the distance that separated our house from the village and from another house, more weather-worn than ours.  On its door a blue circle stared into the white night with outlines sharp enough to wound.”

–from page 49 of Memory of Water by Emmi Itaranta (translated from Finnish)
