Teaser Tuesday (15)

teasertuesdays31

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!
This conversation takes place after Lucy makes a big deal about her brother Jed and her new husband Nate washing up before eating at the table.  I thought it was really cute. 
At the conclusion of his prayer, Lucy glanced at her brother. "Would you quote your Bible verse , Jed?"

Jed turned scarlet "Uh, I forgot it, Lucy."
"Psalm 51:2," she prompted.
"Oh I remember. 'Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.'"

A smile played around her lips and she glanced at Nate.

"I like Matthew 15:19 and 15:20. 'For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witnesses, blasphemies: These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.'" He grinned back at her.

From Blue Moon Promise by Colleen Coble
