Today's Read: Sea Escape by Lynne Griffin

MizB at Should Be Reading hosts Teaser Tuesdays. Here's how it works: Grab your current read; let the book fall open to a random page; and share 2 “teaser” sentences from that page. For more teasers, click on through to MizB's blog.

Men in my mother's life made a habit of leaving. Holden was no exception. Four hours after he got there, he was ready to take off. Early on, after our argument over the do not resuscitate order and my brief disappearance, he actually pretended to be interested in how business was going for Christian. He asked me to remind him again what grades Henry and Claire were in. Soon polite conversation descended into silence and the hospital room became airless; our mother was the only family member with an excuse for not talking. (p. 67)
