Teaser Tuesdays




Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. This week I'm reading another wonderful novel by Robin Maxwell. (Her newest will be released this week go check out "O, Juliet" at your nearest bookstore. The book is called "Signora da Vinci" and is the trials and tribulations of Leonardo's mother and himself. I'm only halfway through but I started it yesterday so it's one of those "can't put down" novels. Check back to see my review but for now here's my teaser Tuesday:
"My son was the epitome of all the church feared most. More than stylish
clothes and ornaments that every Florentine affected, it was his secret thoughts
and his strange behaviors that set him most dangerously apart-his blatant
refusal to hear the mass or take communion, his human dissections, his love of
men as well as women, even his refusal to eat the flesh of animals."

~pg. 286 "Signora da Vinci" by Robin Maxwell

Let me know your thoughts and if you have an intriguing teaser. I love to find new blogs of interest and really love to "read your minds"

LOL=Lots Of Love
