Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just open your current read to a random page and share a few sentences. Be careful not to include spoilers!
When I was sent this book by Shelf Awareness for review, I knew the name Terry Tempest Williams, but couldn’t place it. I had a good feeling, though. I looked up her previous works and found the one I’d read: Pieces of White Shell, which I read at least several times as a kid (middle school, ish?) and enjoyed. Now I have a good feeling, even more. My review won’t post for a while (closer to the publication date of April 10), but for now, enjoy this teaser.
I will never know her story. I will never know what she was trying to tell me by telling me nothing.
But I can imagine. This act of creativity is my joy and protection.
And isn’t this the beautiful truth of love and power?
In a word, this book is a series of musings on voice, inspired by the shelves of copious journals left to to Williams by her mother – all empty.
