Teaser Tuesday: The Brothers of Gwynedd by Edith Pargeter

Later this month I am participating in the Sourcebooks Summer Reading Group for The Brothers of Gwynedd by Edith Pargeter. Originally there were four books released individually that formed the whole series, but Sourcebooks are rereleasing the novels as one huge edition! In order to make the discussion work better and also to make it a manageable read, we are reading each book separately, one a month, and there will be discussion each month. I am really looking forward to it, but I realised that even though I am only reading one book initially, I really needed to hurry up and start reading the book! I am glad that I have started early because the writing seems quite dense so far.

My teaser comes from page 11 - very early in the first book which was called Sunrise in the West:

By the upland road we went, turning our backs on that blessed sea that leads outward over the watery brightness to the beauteous isle of Enlli, where the saints are sleeping in bliss. We went towards the rib of Lleyn, that leads into Wales as an arm leads into the body: from rest into turmoil, from peace into conflict, from bliss into anguish.

It may well be that you will see more teasers from this book over the coming weeks. Please note that this teaser comes from an Uncorrected Advance Readers Copy so the final contents may change slightly.

Teaser Tuesday is host by Miz B at Should Be Reading. Head on over to find out all about it, and how to join in!
