Teaser Tuesdays - October 20

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Here's how it works:
-grab your current read
-open to a random page
-share two teaser sentences from somewhere on the page (avoid spoilers!)
-be sure to include the title and author so other TT participants can add the book to their tbr list if they like your teaser
-leave a comment with your link at Should Be Reading

My teaser:

I hugged my grief; it was all I had. Nothing could heal it; it was a deathless wound.
Alas! the bitterest lesson I have since learned is how gently and remorselessly Time steals even our deepest wounds from us. (page 304)
