Teaser Tuesday 11/10

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!
  • Share the title & author, too, so that others can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!
From The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.
They all dandled the baby, and now that the child can walk, she goes everywhere with one or another of them - holding hands or riding on their shoulders. Such are their standards! You must not glorify such people in the Times!
At first I thought that said dangled, then I re-read it and realized the word was dandled. Never heard of it! Per Wiktionary, to dandle is to move [an infant] up and down on one's knee or in one's arms in affectionate play. The horror! =)
