Teaser Tuesdays: Passing Strange

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!

Passing Strange: A Gilded Age Tale of Love and Deception Across the Color Line by Martha A. Sandweiss

"When King moved to New York in late 1873, his survey's fieldwork complete, he was a celebrity. The wildly acclaimed author of Mountaineering and tough-minded hero of the diamond hoax seemed the vigorous archetype of a new American man."

He did in fact remind me a little bit of Theodore Roosevelt. But he peaked early, and so was nearly forty at this point and about to meet Ada, but he would never achieve those career heights again.
