*Please no spoilers!

*Share the title & author.

By request, Teaser Tuesday is back! Glad to know someone missed it. This week's selection, Pope Joan, is a book I come late to as it seems many in my blogging world have read it and the movie is soon to be out. I'm still waiting to hear who the lucky blogger is that will walk the Red Carpet with Donna Woolfolk Cross. I'm just back from vacation so maybe it's already been announced and no one's told me yet that I'm going!

Here's an excerpt from Donna Woolfolk Cross' Pope Joan.

"While Gerold paid for his purchase, Joan's attention wandered to a few sheets of ragged-looking parchment scattered untidily toward the rear of the stall. The edges of the sheets were torn, and there was writing on them, very faint and obliterated in places by ugly brown stains. She bent close to read the writing better, then flushed with excitement."

Happy Tuesday!

I'm so glad Teaser Tuesdays are back!
My bit is from Phantom of The Opera,

"You are making me run away, for the first time in my lif. If we really saw Eric, what I ought to have done was to nail him to Apollo's lyre, just as we nail the owls to the wallS of our Brenton farms; and there would have been no more question of him."
