Teaser Tuesdays: The Daughter of Time

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 Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey p. 31

"If that man were her patient what would be her verdict? 'Liver,' she said crisply, and bore away the tray in heel-trapping protest, all starch and blond curls."

The man in question in a picture was Richard III, and his picture intrigued Grant while stuck in the hospital recuperating. He figured he'd ask the nurse her opinion.

I read that several years ago. It is sooo good. I keep meaning to read more by Tey but never seem to get around to it. I especially want to read Brat Farrar because I loved the miniseries.
