Teaser Tuesday:  The Sandcastle Girls

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Jenn @ A Daily Rhythm. Here are the rules: grab whatever you're reading, open to a random page, select no more than two sentence (NO SPOILERS), share the title and author, and GO!

Here's today's teaser:
"The women look like dying wild animals as they lurch forward, some holding on to the walls of the stone houses to remain erect.  She has never in her life seen people so thin and wonders how in the name of God their bony legs can support them.  Their breasts are lost to their ribs.  The bones of their hips protrude like baskets.
          'Elizabeth, you don't need to watch,' her father is saying, but she does.  She does." --page 13

          The Sandcastle Girls by Chris Bohjalian

Haunting images of the Armenian Genocide...I know little of this...so tragic.

Happy reading!
