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!
Here’s my teaser:
“Weddings here [in Syria] come in two stages, the kitab when the contract which legalizes the marriage is signed and the irs which is an optional party to celebrate the actual wedding night. Unlike a Christian wedding, there are now vows and a wedding is not a religious ceremony.”
This is from Road to Damascus by Elaine Rippey Imady. This book is the memoir of an American woman who married a Muslim from Syria in the 1950s and moved to Damascus with him. They lived happily ever after. Seriously!
