Teaser Tuesday: Season of Storms by Susanna Kearsley

I couldn't finish the year without reading another book by one of my favourite authors, Susanna Kearsley, so this week's teaser is from page 51 of Season of Storms:

This morning had challenged me on all three fronts - our flight had been rough, and when we'd landed at the Marco Polo airport we had transferred to an overcrowded, overheated bus that had carried us over the causeway to Venice, and when the bus had let us off I'd had to drag my heavy suitcases for what had seemed miles, up and over the little arched bridges that were, I imagined - at times when you weren't hauling suitcases - quite picturesque, but whose endless stone steps had at the time been sheer torture. I'd felt like the porter at Rupert's club, like poor Sisyphus endlessly rolling his boulder uphill, labouring up to the summit of each bridge only to find there was one more beyond that to climb...down and up, down and up...in the heat and the crowds it was hell.
Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading. Head on over to find out all about it, and how to join in!


  1. Wonderful cover. And I am interested in the novel after reading the teaser!

    Teaser Tuesday: If Walls Could Talk by Juliet Blackwell

  2. Sounds like it's going to be a tough trip! Great teaser! I hope you enjoy the rest of the book!

  3. This book would irritate me with sentences THAT long!


  4. Brilliant! I am adding tis one to my TBR list. My TT: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/12/teaser-tuesdays-a-stitch-before-dying.html

  5. This sounds interesting, I haven't heard of this author before. Must investigate further.

    Mine is http://bit.ly/hs6O5G


  6. I think I'd feel the same way lugging a big suitcase around. Nice teaser. Kaye—the road goes ever ever on

  7. This is a new author for us. Have never read anything by her.

    Here's ours if you get a chance to stop by:

  8. Great teaser. I just downloaded one of her books the other day - Marianna - I think it is.

  9. Darlene, Mariana was good! I loved The Winter Sea and The Shadowy Horses too!

    Jacinta and Karen and Gerard, I would definitely recommend The Winter Sea as a good place to start with Susanna Kearsley

    Kaye, me too.

    Jennifer, I hope you get to read it.

    Fredamans, they aren't all that long. I think it generally reflects the character's emotions at that particular time in the story.

    Zibilee, I am sure that I will.

    Gautami, Teaser Tuesday has done it's work then!

  10. What wonderful writing, I feel like I'm right there with her and that suitcase. Reminds me of a time I disembarked from a train in Shanghai many years ago ;)

  11. Booklover, I was certainly transported back to my visit to Venice during this part of the book
