Teaser Tuesdays - April 28

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. To play :
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!

My teaser:
Until the terrifying but really unavoidable breakdown of this evening, no one had ever seen her weep, heavy and poisonous as were the bitter tears she so frequently held back. She never forgot to say "thank you" and "please". Her heart swelled with an angry sense of how far beyond criticism she was. Come what might she would do her duty to the utmost. (page 42-43)
