Teaser Tuesday / It’s Tuesday Where Are You?


I am growing up in Newquay, by the sea in Cornwall, in the late 1920s. I have an older sister and brother and my sister Pam and I are thrilled that our mother is about to have another baby.

It’s Tuesday, where are you? is hosted by raidergirl3.


Just quote a couple of spoiler-free sentences the book you’re reading to tempt other readers.

Here is mine:-

“We take it for granted that Newquay residents are, almost without exception, a superior breed to Newquay visitors. The Hallsmiths can thus, being residents, regard the seasonal influx of holiday-makers on their beach – our beach – with aloof condescension and a certain degree of pity”

This all comes courtesy of The Great Western Beach by Emma Smith.

An utterly charming memoir!

I have to say that my teaser isn’t typical, but I had to use it because I live in another Cornish seaside town and the sentiment remains the same.

  1. I’ve noticed the same phenomenon at beach towns in the United States. Must be something in the beach water? I don’t blame them as they are blessed to be living there and should show it. Great teasers.

  2. What a fun teaser/Where Am I! I have to say I’ve met a few people like that, who love their home-town, and don’t really love the visitors because of the damage they bring with (litter, noise, etc).

    Here’s my Teaser! I’m also giving away 15 galley copies of this book via the publisher, so stop by and see if you want to enter! 🙂 ~ Wendi
