Teaser Tuesdays: This Dark Road to Mercy

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!

This Dark Road to Mercy by Wiley Cash p. 53

"But being out there gave me plenty of time to think, which is exactly what I needed to do. I thought about what I'd heard Miss Crawford say to Wade last Saturday morning about how she'd been talking with our grandparents and that she couldn't make any promises about whether or not we'd be moving to Alaska."

Kids this age are often eavesdropping, particularly when it involves decisions being made about themselves. But it would be especially hard to listen to the director of the foster home talking about shipping you from North Carolina, where you'd lived your entire life, to Alaska to grandparents you've never met, when your father, who may have abandoned you but who now has changed his mind and is fighting for you, is right there but can't help. It's good she had that time out in right field to think about it.
