Teaser Tuesday - Suite Française

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

To participate, do the following:
Grab your current read.
Let the book fall open to a random page.
Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
Please avoid spoilers!

"But his voice quivered and in the lady's laugh you could hear the echo of stifled sobs.  She laughed like someone who had been very frightened and couldn't forget, while laughing, that she'd had a narrow escape."

p.277 of Suite Française by Irène Némirovsky
