Teaser Tuesday 2/2

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!
My teaser today is from the third book in Orson Scott Card's Alvin Maker series, Prentice Alvin. Last week, my teaser was from the first book in this series, Seventh Son. Usually I'm pretty good about following the rules and just including two sentences, but today I'm expanding my quote a little bit.
Next spring he'd be free. No slave in the South ever knew such a thing: nary such a hope would ever enter their heads. Alvin had thought on that often enough over the years, when he was feeling most put upon; he'd think, if they can keep on living and working, having no hope of freedom, then I can hold out for another five years, three years, one year, knowing that it'll come to an end someday.

  2. So do I have to read the others in the series for this book to make sense? I'm intrigued.

  5. Sounds like a good one. Sometimes 2 sentences just make no sense, you need that little extra. My teaser is here
