Teaser Tuesdays: Ordinary Grace

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!

Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger p. 26

"To this day for much of its length the river is shadowed by railroad. To a thirteen-year-old kid in 1961 that set of tracks seemed to reach to a horizon from beyond which came the sound of the world calling."

The railroad and the trestle (featured on the cover) is very important in the book, even though the heyday of railroads was long past.

That sounds nostalgic and brings back summers spent walking on the rails. Lovely writing.

I love the writing in your Teaser. It reminds me of the movie "Stand By Me."
Here's the link to my Tuesday post: Tumbleweeds.
