This week my teaser lines come from The Summer Before the War, the new novel by Helen Simonson (Random House, March 2016). This quote comes from page 39, or Location 634 of the Kindle edition:
"I hope you will be able to be happy as well as merely useful," said Hugh. "This town has always been a very tranquil refuge for me, but you may find it quiet after your life of travel."I'm just starting this one, so I don't really know why she wants to be a hermit. But sometimes I feel the same way!
"I would settle for being a hermit," she said.
