TeaserTuesday - When we were orphans






Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.
Grab the book you are currently reading and randomly post a couple sentences.




It was the summer of 1923, the summer I came down from Cambridge when despite my aunt's wishes that I return to Shropshire, I decided my future lay in the capital
and took up a small flat at Number 14B Bedford Gardens in Kensington.

I remember it as the most wonderful of summers.


Two sentences from

When we were orphans by Kazuo Ishiguro

This sounds like a really good book, Mystica. Excellent teaser! I would like to read something by this author before too long for the JLC-4 (or, more realistically, for the JLC-5).

It's funny; I heard this as an audiobook. It's so different actually seeing the words. I really enjoyed it and hope you do too.

Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier.

I've never read any of Kazuo Ishiguro's books although I've heard about him before. Are you enjoying it?

Very nice teaser...full of nostalgia! Thanks for stopping by mine. If you're loving the Deanna Raybourn series (and I see that you are), then you might try the India Black novel that I featured in my Teaser. It's due out in January. I really like the Raybourn series and I can see similarities in the styles of these two authors...different voices, but speaking the same language.
