Live Wire

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 Teaser Tuesdays  participants can add the book to their To Read Lists if they like your teasers!

Several sentences (which don’t give away the plot of the book).

We are often told during times of bereavement that time heals all wounds.  That’s crap.  In truth, you are devastated, you mourn, you cry to the point where you think you’ll never stop–and then you reach a stage where the survival instinct takes over.  You stop.  You simply won’t or can’t let yourself ‘go there’ anymore because the pain was too great.  You block.  You deny.
But you don’t really heal.

  1. That is so very true…and it’s annoying when people try to “dismiss” the feelings by saying that thing about time healing all wounds.

    I like the one a friend used to say: “Time wounds all heels.” Just saying.

    Here’s MY TT POST

  2. Oh my, this is so touching. I am suddenly noticing Coben everywhere. Here he is again. I think I need to read something by him!

    Thanks for this teaser, especially today. Please come by for a visit!
