Teaser Tuesday 2/2 An Unfinished Score

Barbara's picture

My teaser for this week is from An Unfinished Score by Elise Blackwell (Unbridled Books, April 2010)

An Unfinished Score"The applause approached wildness and the stage shook with it when Alex, again staring at her, both of them already consumed, turned his open hand for her to stand as St. Louis bid her farewell. Because she wanted to halt time but could not, she experienced the coiled happiness and remorse as though the moment had already passed, as though she was looking back on an earlier time."

The love of music, the music of love, friendship, loss, secrets, betrayal -- enough fodder for reading groups to engage in a lively conversation.

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!

I love music in books  -- some of my favorites are The Student Conductor by Robert Ford, Good Things I Wish You by A. Manette Ansay

What's your teaser this week? Or, what books do you like that involve music?
