Teaser Tuesday: A Tapestry of Dreams by Roberta Gellis


TEASER TUESDAYS :
hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading ~





A Tapestry of Dreams
There was the sound of something falling, and then the sound of Audris's merry laugh. As Eadyth came closer, the feeble lamplight showed Audris blinking like an owl and smiling.

"Oh, aunt, how you startled me!" she cried.

~ page 64 “A Tapestry of Dreams ARC by Roberta Gellis

** Note: This Teaser is taken from an Advance Reader Copy and may be slightly different from the final version.

About the Book (from Amazon):
A maiden who will not marry

For the lovely Lady Audris, taking a husband would mean losing her home. She is content to concentrate on her special gift, weaving gorgeous tapestries that often contain hints of the future. But nothing predicts the arrival of Hugh Licorne, confident in his strength and single-minded in his determination-to have her.

A battle-hardened knight who needs a bride

From the moment Hugh sets eyes on Lady Audris, he knows he has found the woman destined to be his wife. She's courageous and beautiful, delicate yet strong. But winning her trust and defending her from her enemies will be the greatest battle he has ever faced.

In an era where the sole purpose of a woman was to marry this sounds an unusual decision.

I think there were some ancient cultures who have women behaved like this. This sound interesting.

I didn't realize Roberta Gellis was still writing. Used to read her a very long time ago. Sounds just as interesting. :)

I'm not familiar with this author, but everyone seems to love her so much I may have to look for some the next time I'm at the library.
Thanks for stopping by the blog earlier, I'm excited that your TT helped me find a new author!
