Teaser Tuesdays: Wash

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!

Wash by Margaret Wrinkle p. 80

"Quinn has changed his mind about my using Wash as our traveling negro. Now that he knows him better, he says I'm a damn fool to breed for sense, and works as hard as he can to keep Wash's get from around here."

The owner, Richardson, bred horses so he does know about breeding for different traits. It is interesting that instead of breeding an excellent worker, he bred a slave who had been a bit of trouble and is too smart for his own good, considering his circumstances.

Interesting teaser. I haven't heard of this book before. My teasers this week comes from Royally Lost by Angie Stanton and A Creature of Moonlight by Rebecca Hahn. Happy reading!

This sounds like a deep and meaningful book. It's hard to believe such attitudes ever existed, isn't it?
My Teaser is from A SLIGHT CHANGE OF PLAN.
