Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
- 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!

"Is Jackson sleeping?" he whispered, as if he could wake the baby from six states away, as the stork flies.
She swirled her tea bag through steaming water. If it were her typical daytime choice-Black Pearl-it would by now be oversteeped, the deep molasses of Gil's eyes. "Jackson? sleeping obviously, like I should be".
In 2013, Becky rocks a grandbaby who has rocked her world, unaware that the child brings to a close the intertwining stories of three women Becky, Ivy, and Anna across three generations.
In the 1950s, with her fiance Drew overseas in the Korean Conflict, Ivy works at a nursing home to keep her sanity and provide for the child Drew doesn t know is coming. Ivy cares for Anna, and one day she realizes that Anna s wild tales are not just idle ramblings. They re Anna s disjointed memories of a remarkable life helping unwed mothers at the turn of the 20th century, nurturing them in a home where morning glories climb up one wall.
Finding a faint thread of hope for her own life in these tales, Ivy records Anna s memoir, marveling at Anna s emotion-packed, grace-hemmed stories. Praying for hope and God s guidance for the child of her own unwed daughter, Becky brings the story full circle she settles her family into a new home, next door to the one covered in morning glories.
