TEASER TUESDAYS: The Blue Cotton Gown – Patricia Harman

Teaser Tuesday, a blog meme hosted by MizB on Should Be Reading.

Grab your current read. Let the book fall open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page. Share the title & author of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR list if they like your teaser. Please avoid spoilers!

So here is my Tuesday Teaser:

If the patient had been born with a deformity, some error of nature such as a cleft lip or clubfoot, someone would help her. To Kasmar, her female body was just as much as mistake.
