Teaser Tuesday (June 21, 2016)

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat. 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!

Here is my teaser:
"What the Maestro would not or could not verbalize, he expressed, as she did, in his art, in his frescoes.  Although the scenes he painted were not intimate, she knew how to read them.  For instance, she knew from the way he positioned a woman in his painting and certain other details--how he painted the eyes, for example--which of his models had been his mistress."
Frida's Bed by Slavenka Drakulic, p.88
