Thursday Book Teaser #5: A Love By Any Other Measure

Thursday Book Teaser is a Carole-version of all the other book teaser memes out there. Every Thursday, I'll share a little tease of a book I'm currently reading. I'll randomly pick a page or I'll give some random number and flip to that page. I'll just share a few sentences to try and tease you. Anyone can join in! Just remember spoilers! By the way this picture I found on Google and edited it myself.

Happy Thursday everyone! Do you guys like the meme picture? I had found it on Google and edited it myself. For this week I'll share a teaser from 'A Love By Any Other Measure'. 

Page Number: 59% or page 59 (in honor of my Dad's birthday today! He was born in '59)
Beginning at Sentence: 2

"'When does he intend to tell her? We'll be there in only a few hours.'

'I hope he's telling her nor, though poor dear. She's so sick. Nevertheless, he's assured me that she isn't expecting.'

'Well, that is a blessing,' Jefferson concurred. He leaned over and kissed Caroline's forehead. 'Don't fret, angel. Somehow, all this will find a way to work out. I know it seems impossible now, but just give it time.'

Caroline had seen enough of the way love filled the room whenever August and Maeve were together the last few weeks and, if she thought back further, in those days when Maeve had stayed to Shepherd's Bluff, to know that Jefferson was right. Yet she couldn't shake the feeling that this could never be. On Maeve's side, she had been ostracized in Ireland. she had tried to send word to her father in Killarney. He refused to acknowledge her. August and Caroline had already lost both mother and father, but they would certainly be subjected to the same level of public scrutiny once back at Norwich, and Maeve would be burned by it as well, no doubt. Even if she loved August one-tenth the amount he loved her, Caroline didn't know how much more Maeve could endure in the pursuit of that love.

She sighed and relaxed deeper into Jefferson's hold. 'I hope you are right. Still, I cannot fathom how August plans to balance the two.'"

I must announce...happy birthday Dad!
