Teaser Tuesday


Grab your current read. Let the book fall open to a random page. Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12. You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
Please avoid spoilers!


"A good wedding it had been, Old Benjamin said, an alliance between cash and culture, between a rich man's daughter and this young Spanish scholar of excellent pedigree whom Chaim intended to keep as an eidem afkest, a resident son-in-law to whom he would give a dowry of ten marks..."

pg. 141, Mistress of the Art of Death by Ariana Franklin

I just started this book, but it has drawn me in quickly. And since I work in the medical field, this aspect of the book speaks to me as well.

Interesting teaser, and the title is equally as intriguing! Let us know how it turns out for this marriage between "cash and culture"!
