•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!

Private Peaceful by Michael Morpurgo
As Mother smooths my hair and Big Joe offers her yet another foxglove, all I can thing is that I have caused this.

I have killed my own father.

  12. Hi Beth,

    Michael Morpurgo has a huge following here in the UK, amongst both adults and children.

    I haven't read any of his stuff myself, but I can't think why, as I follow the charity work which he does for disadvantaged children quite avidly.

    This book sounds so intriguing and after I sneaked a peek at the full synopsis, very emotional I should think.

    Definitely one for my reading list, so thanks for sharing.


  13. After looking at the cover and the title I wasn't prepared so the sad,mysterious teaser.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog :D

  14. Aw, sad teaser! I have a feeling there's more to the story.

  15. Sounds very sad and intriguing at the same time. Great teaser!
