Teaser Tuesday: Peony in Love

teaser-tuesdayTeaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of Should be Reading.

  • 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!

My teaser this week comes from Peony in Love, by Lisa See.

peonyinlove1For daughters, marrying out is a little like dying.  We say goodbye to our parents, our aunts and uncles, our cousins, and the servants who cared for us, and go into an entirely new life, where we live with our true families, where our names will be listed in our in-laws’ ancestral hall.  In this way, marriage is like experiencing death and rebirth without having to travel to the afterworld.  These are morbid thoughts for any bride, I know, but mine were compounded by my unhappy situation.
