Teaser Tuesday 6/29

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 Captive Queen: A Novel of Eleanor of Aquitaine by Alison Weir.
It seemed to her that this marriage that she had defied the world to make had become, in its own way, as much a form of captivity as her union with Louis had been in another. This was not the partnership she had planned for, but a vile endurance, she told herself angrily.
Book is out 7/13. Please note that the text may vary in the final version.

  1. A review copy! It must be kind of cool to read books before anyone else gets a chance. I hope it isn't depressing all the way through, though.

    My teaser is here.

  4. Seems like an old world marriage to me, or at least I hope so.

    My teaser is up at Find the Time to Read I hope you'll check it out.

    I know enough about Eleanor of Aquitaine not to feel sorry for her because of her second marriage. Generally speaking, I think it's true that we can't escape the problems in one relationship simply by entering another; and that probably explains Eleanor's case.

  7. Eleanor was such a fascinating character. I don't read much historical fiction, but this is one I might have to take a look at. Good teaser!

    Here’s my teaser from Damaged.

  8. Interesting teaser. Sad but I guess candid and true for that time period.
