Teaser Tuesdays: The Watery Part of the World


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!

The Watery Part of the World by Michael Parker p. 38

"'You worry that I'll tell them you're not so crazy,' he said.
She looked up at him, terrified suddenly that her every thought was obvious, transparent."

Theodosia Burr Alston's ship was captured by pirates off the coast of North Carolina en route to New England from Charleston. In order to protect herself from would-be attackers, she's been pretending to be insane. She's been taken in by Whaley, who knows she's only faking, and he's fine with that.
