Teaser Tuesday #117

Auguri di Pasqua e Pasquetta in ritardissimo: avevo scritto dei post, ma siccome sono un genio mi sono scordata di programmarli.
Ma ora passiamo alla rubrica odierna, creata dal blog Should Be Reading, che si divide in poche, semplici fasi:
1_ prendi il libro che stai leggendo
2_ apri una pagina a caso
3_ scrivi un breve brano (stando attenti a non spoilerare)
4_ scrivi titolo e autore

"What I mean was I had always counted on your carrying on the great work for my people which your father began."
"My father!" Richard threw his apple untasted to the circling gulls. "Bah, Robin, don't preach!"
"The wrong he did to you blinded you to his wisdom," Robin persisted. How often had he seen him sitting at this very table,choleric and conscientious, working when he might be hunting - never too tired to explain his system of economics to any youngster who was genuinely interested! Because he had known no father of his own, Robin's hand pressed gently on the chair back where that greying red head had so often rested. "He saw the opportunities of peace," he said. "Not many men would have had the energy to take over an island full of wranglings breeds and weld them into a united nation."
"Are we a nation?" enquired Richard negligently, picking over the fruit. "Or just a pack of mongrels?"
 - The Passionate Broom: a novel of Richard Lionheart and the man who became Robin Hood, Margareth Campbell Barnes

  1. Mmm.. Il teaser non mi ha convinto molto. Com'è? XD

    1. Carino, ma evitabile se non ti interessa il periodo o i personaggi.

  2. Sembra promettente, ma aspetterò di saperne di più! :)
