Teaser Tuesday: Summers at Castle Auburn by Sharon Shinn

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:
Summers at Castle Auburn
          "Did someone want her?"
"Oh, yes. Your uncle Jaxon had a dozen offers. But Andrew convinced him that she needed time."
"How much time?"
Cressida shook another handful of crystals into the water and appeared to watch them dissolve. "Longer than Jaxon think," she said on a sigh.
I felt my heart squeeze in protest. "Is she -- but she'll be -- I mean, in time, she'll be fine, won't she?"
Cressida turned her head to gaze at me, a weight of sorrow in her face. I felt centuries of despair in that gaze, eons of longing. "She has been torn from her family and her life and will be sold into slavery, " the aliora said in a low voice. "Imagine yourself in her place and answer your own question." - pgs. 176-177, Summers at Castle Auburn by Sharon Shinn
