Teaser Tuesday...Music's Healing Powers
With the end of the term in sight, I promise to get caught up on my reviews. I have a pile of seven books sitting next to my computer...all read...all waiting to be reviewed. Ugh. In addition to that, I will be adding yet another to said pile in a few days because I'm nearly halfway through with The Diplomat's Wife, which I posted a teaser for last week just before starting it. Despite my serious lack of reviewing (damn you student essays!), I am still posting teasers for new books that I'm starting. So, without further ado, here's today's teaser from Alexander McCall Smith's La's Orchestra Saves the World:
"The music reminded her: love and loss were inextricably linked. This world was a world of suffering; music helped to make that suffering bearable" (109).
