Teaser Tuesdays: True North


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!
True North: A Memoir by Jill Ker Conway p. 17

"They were all so curious about me, asking direct yet compassionate questions about who I was and what I was looking for in life. I was accustomed to my mask and obliged for the first time to ask myself the same questions before I could answer my new companions."

It's nice for once to read a book about a foreigner (Australian) coming to the United States and actually finding Americans nice instead of crass and boorish, our usual reputation.

True, Americans aren't always written about without being pulled down.
