Teaser Tuesday (5)

Teaser Tuesdays was started by MizB from Should Be Reading. It's open to everyone! Just do the following:

-Grab your current read.
-Open to a random page.
-Share a couple of “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
-BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (You don’t want to ruin the book for others! That would be an unforgivable sin)

My Teaser for today:

A nine-year-old shouldn't be dragged from her house by someone who hates her. Nor be forced to hear the language of the unloved. Nor be jiggled in the laps of perverts. A nine-year-old shouldn't be told, "We'll take you home now, but we'll be back. We're right outside your window."
Page 35

I actually put four sentences instead of two, but whatever. I'm reading this book for my book club, and although I usually prefer YA fiction over adult fiction, I am enjoying this book. Not a love, but it keeps me entertained. Despite that quote I just posted from the book, Peace Like a River is actually not a horror story or even scary at all. It's more of a Christian story about family and trusting in the Lord.
