Teaser Tuesdays – House of Windows, Adina Hoffman

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 windows possessed ghostly, calming properties: Standing still and looking out, I had a peculiar feeling of privilege at being able to peer at the world from above, as though I truly had come to rest at the earth’s epicenter, the Jerusalem of the medieval maps.  This was, I like to think, not snobbery but the flush of refreshed perspective, since what I could see from my perch was not really a view, in the obvious tourist-snapshot sense of the word, but an average landscape make breathtaking by my enchanted angle. – p. 7 “House of Windows” – Adina Hoffman
