Teaser Tuesday!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following: 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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

 My Teasers are from The Peculiar by Stefan Bachmann:

Mrs. Kettle did laundry for the few people who could afford not to do it themselves, the few people she could trick into believing that she had a proper laundry service and didn't trundle their nighties and undergarments into the depths of the faery slums in a great green wheelbarrow.  She bought the lye from peddlers, but it had always been the children's job to dig for scrubbing sand in the little courtyard behind the house.
