Teaser Tuesday: The House of Spirits

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading.  All you have to do is choose two random teaser sentences from your current read.

Mine this week comes from Isabel Allende's House of Spirits:

"More than half a century has passed, but I can still remember the exact moment when Rosa the Beautiful entered my life like a distracted angel who stole my soul as she went by."  p.35


"The pig arrived on a Tuesday.  On Friday, when the pig was no more than a heap of skin and bones that Barrabas was gnawing in the courtyard, Clara announced that there would soon be another death in the del Valle family."  p.38
