My teaser this week is from No Shame, No Fear by Anne Turnball, which I reviewed this week and I hope that if you read the review and liked the sound of it, this will help you to get a flavour of the book. I have included extracts from both of the main character's pint of view to give a clearer picture of the themes of love and religious faith.
Extract from the character Susannah's point of view:
'When would he come again? I could think of nothing else for the rest of the day; in my imagination I relived our conversation, saw his hands close to mine as we both kneeled to stroke the little dog, heard his voice, his questions, every word he'd said.'
From Will's point of view:
'And now I had found a faith that challenged me to overturn my life. I had been shown a new way to live, and, no matter how difficult and dangerous it might be, I knew I had to meet that challenge.'
