Teaser Tuesday: The Secret River by Kate Grenville

“Then he saw that he was being watched by two black men. It was not so much that they appeared, as that they had chosen to become visible…Thornhill got to his feet. As if waiting for this, the standing one stepped forward: a grey-grizzled man with stringy shanks and an old man’s boxy chest and high round belly.” p.142-143

Today’s Teaser Tuesday comes from The Secret River by Kate Grenville, set in colonial Australia–when the British were beginning to take more resources and land away from the aboriginal people. This is my second book for the Aussie Author Challenge in which I am taking part.

I’m really loving this book so far! 😀

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 teaser
