"We were leaving behind the only home I'd ever known, where I had once dreamed a golden life full of promise: dancing at the doge's ball, petal-strewn walks in the garden, even giggling around the ribbon booth over some lad who was making eyes at me. In this city every corner held some memory of my mother: her favorite bakery, sweet with orange rind and cardamom, the river where she'd taken me as a little girl to sail my toy boat, the bustling markets she'd walked through with such grace and style that people thought her a titled lady."

-Fortune's Folly, Page 12, by Deva Fagan

What a sad teaser, It sounds like it will be an interesting read, and I am wondering what the folly is

Interesting teaser! I wonder why she (they) are leaving. My teaser is from Knightley Academy by Violet Haberdasher. Happy reading!

I feel sad now :(

On the other hand, the memories are so warmly described. Beautiful teaser & good choice. And it seems to strike a chord with a lot of bloggers!
