Teaser Tuesdays: Silver Sparrow




Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading


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!

Silver Sparrow by Tayari Jones

"Nine years married, with no high-school diploma and no baby to show for her efforts, my mama was not a lucky person. Blessings were rare enough that they caught her attention when they showed themselves, and she had good sense enough to snag a good thing before it could get away."


We should all remember to do this, even if we've not had much bad luck in our past.

Silver Sparrow was indeed a good read, Her father being a bigamist living two lifestyles what bother me is I really didn't like how he treated Dana and her mom, I felt as though they we're basically leftovers...great read very enjoyable
