Teaser Tuesday...

 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!
 My teaser from The Sandlwood Tree.

There is nothing more delightful than to sit in the sunshine, wrapped in an Indian shawl, & admire the distant peaks.  Those mountains!  When God gave us speech, he did not expect us to talk about the Himalayas.  They appear like a mirage, a hallucination painted on the sky & at the sight of them one can only bubble foolishly or remain silent.

Beautiful cover and the verse is lyrical. I love reading your posts about what you're reading. You inspire me to pick up my own read more often.
