Teaser Tuesdays: From Time to 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!

From Time to Time by Jack Finney p. 30

"Yes, but... say it."
"The white letters high on the painted black hull of that ship read Titanic, as I've told people for the rest of my life."

So says an elderly lawyer, remembering going down to the Hudson River with his father to watch the famous ship docking in New York. Confusing? Well, as Einstein said, history is a river and the past is still there, its just behind a bend. And sometimes, perhaps, history has changed (as a result of Si and his co-Projecters, for example). Some people, it seems have retained the old memories from the previous history.
