Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading. Here's how it works:
*Grab your current read.
*Open to a random page.
*Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page.
*BE CAREFUL NOT TO USE SPOILERS.
*Include the title and author so others can add it to their TBR list.
Here are my two teaser lines for the week. They are from Sharon Kay Penman's 2nd novel in her Eleanor of Aquitaine trilogy, Time and Chance.
Eleanor could not help smiling, for that sounded just like Arnulf of Lisieux. A shrewd, worldly man in his late fifties, he was as noted for his political acumen as for his erudition, and since his arrival from his Norman see, he'd been advising Henry how best to outmaneuver Becket. She regretted, though, that he'd seen fit to strip Will of his optimism. Will needed hope as much as he did air and food.
Eleanor did not fully understand it, either. How could these two men have been such close friends and yet misread each other so calamitously? Her husband had utterly failed to anticipate the archbishop Becket would become. But what of Becket? Had he learned nothing in their years together? How could he not realize what a formidable and unforgiving enemy Harry would make?
