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!
The ideal female heart was to be so sensitive, so flooded by shock and sadness in a situation such as this, that listless grief could be the only response. To be seen as carrying on with life would mark us as strange, cruel, masculine-and, for me, it would be social death.

I could not imagine living in a society where I was expected to just curl up in a fetal position and cry when life gets hard. Can you?
