Teaser Tuesday!

Good morning and Happy Tuesday!  With travel and vacation, I’ve missed this meme recently, but I am glad to be back.

Now, you know the rules: open your current read, pick 2 teaser sentences to share and don’t spoil the story!   But do make sure you tell us a bit about the book.

This morning, my teaser is from Heresy by S. J. Parris.  I am devouring this one — about a renegade monk and some murders at Oxford College — and I chose this Teaser from early in the book.  It shows just how little it took to bring down the Inquisition:

“As a matter of curiosity, why did you abandon the monastary?”

“I was caught reading Erasmus in the privy.”

Not familiar with Erasmus?  He was a classical scholar who frequently criticized the Catholic Church and was responsible for some very familiar phrases we use today, such as “opening Pandora’s Box.”

What is teasing YOU this week?

    Very nice teaser and I like the way you explained us into it.

    Mine is up as well and from a particularly snarky line in Hush Hush
