Teaser Tuesday

This teaser is from the part where the girls´ grandfather is supposed to teach them from the bible, he has been admonished by his daughter-in-law not to let them grow up only on his pagan tales:

“`And so lasses, there stands Jesus on the mount, all the world below Him, Lucifer leering at His side,´ says Oupa theatrically. `” All this could be yours forever, if you´ll just kneel down and worship me” he tries to tempt Jesus once more.

`But Jesus- though He be weak and hungry from his forty days and forty nights in the desert- rises up,´ and Oupa´s voice is quivering now, `And He says unto the Prince of Darkness, “Never, Satan! Never! Now get thee hence!” And then He punches the Devil right in the guts and hurls him off the mountain, and the Devil is smashed to a bloody pulp on the rocks below.´”

(Lauren Liebenberg: The Voluptuous Delights of Peanut Butter and Jam. 41 )


Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Should Be Reading and this is how it works:

  • 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!

    It's a lovely rainy day and how else to celebrate but with a good book.
#teaforrainydays #bookstagram #books #booksandtea #wewereliars #elockhart Used book haul, second hand shops are the best!
#books #bookstagram #igreads #bookhaul Escaped the heat by hiding in the library today. Of course then I had to check out some books and carry them home.
#tanafrench #brokenharbour #currentlyreading #books #bookstagram The plan was to put a few shelfs up on the wall above my desk...you know for decorative stuff.
