Teaser Tuesday: Naamah's Curse by Jacqueline Carey

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

1. Grab your current read.
2. Open to a random page.
3. Share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
4. 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!).
5. 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:
Naamah's Curse
The Rebbe's memoir was beautiful, so beautiful in places that it made my heart ache.
He was a wise, compassionate, eloquent, and profoundly conflicted man, who had seen his deepest-held desire come to pass, and feared he did not welcome the form it had taken, even though he had helped to shape it.
At the center of the book was his struggle to reconcile the two Yeshuas: the Yeshua-that-was, the gentle philosopher whose teachings formed much of the long-held faith of the Habiru, whom he called the Children of Yisra-el; and the Yeshua-who-comes, the fierce warrior in whose name a new faith arose in Vralia. - pg. 208, Naamah's Curse by Jacqueline Carey

What are you reading this week?
