Teaser Tuesdays (6)

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 "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
Be careful not to include spoilers!
- Share the title and author, too.

Book: The Postmistress
Author: Sarah Blake

I'm practically done this book, just a few more pages to go! I'll express my full thoughts tomorrow when I (hopefully) post the review, but I will say that Blake's writing style is fantastic. You don't really get that impression from this teaser, but I like this quote a lot.
"Refugees in war is a story we all know. But who is really in those camps and why? Why are they there? Have they done something? ... It can't be true, the civilized world thinks, because that would be mad."

That's the second teaser for this book I see today, and they were both excellent. Probably a sign that I should read this :P
