Teaser Tuesday

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!


This week's teaser:
"Alone, her breath slow and deep, she meditated on the tragedy of Linh's family. If one's meaning came from being a brick in the wall, what did it mean to have no one? To be unmoored? What did it mean in Vietnam not to be part of any family? Was that the answer to the sadness she sensed in him (175)?"
The Lotus Eaters by Tatjana Soli


I am also so far behind that I have yet to write a review for last week's Teaser Tuesday. This end of school year stuff is making me way too busy!

Nice teaser, but I have to say I am really taken with the cover -- such a contrast with what I expected to see for a novel set during the Vietnam War.
