Today's Read: Hush by Eishes Chayil

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.

Devory, can you hear me?

It's hard to write a letter to the dead. It is easier to talk with you directly, as if we are having a real conversation. Sometimes, though, writing is strangely reassuring. When I finish the letter to you I fold the paper into an envelope, tape it shut, and drop it into the mailbox. There is no address on it, no stamp, or anything. It's just a small, white letter, and I can pretend it gets to you. (p. 4)

This book is so powerful. I read and reviewed it a while back. Loved the inside look on the Jewish community.

I've often wondered about this kind of dead letter. Does someone at the post office eventually open and read it? If so, what do they think of its contents? Great teaser! My TT from Linger is here.

I don't know why, but I tear up just a little reading this. It does give me an idea that I could do that. Very nice teaser.
