I have been lugging furniture and stuff around for several nights (and going to the office days), doing my New Year's tradition of cleaning and rearranging my room. Everything hurts, huhuhu. I almost forgot about this.
Oh well, all the cleaning up made me rediscover what books I had, including the one whence today's teaser is taken. I consider this book a very lucky find; the story's such a gem! Today's teaser is the first two lines of the book (again).
I am Buran, daughter of Malik, and the fourth of the seven female children born to him, and to his wife of holy memory, my mother, Zubaydah. My father was called Abu al-Banat, the father of daughters, and the title was not considered an honorable one.
-p. 3, Seven Daughters and Seven Sons, by Barbara Cohen and Bahija Lovejoy
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
* 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!
