Teaser Tuesdays: TO DEFY A KING by Elizabeth Chadwick

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish memehosted by Miz B. of Should Be Reading.

Want to play along? Here's what to do:
  • 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My teaser:
"While her endangered husband strove to hold all together at court, she had to maintain their estates, deal with her vassals, run a household and cope with pregnancy.  He could  not imagine his own gentle mother managing such a feat, although he suspected Mahelt had it within her."
-- page 215

Sounds like a cool woman! She should be a match for her king to take on.
