Another Teaser Tuesday!

Here we are again with Teaser Tuesday, hosted by MizB at shouldbereading.wordpress.com brought to me by way of Ms. Lucy at Enchanted by Josephine.

Here's how to play:

*Grab your current read,
*Open to a random page,
*Share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page,
*Please no spoilers!
*Share the title & author.

Here's this week's Teaser:

From Catherine MacCoun's "The Age of Miracles."

"The first snow of the winter weighted the clouds and made the town quiet. Though it was still midafternoon, lamps burned in the shops and houses. Night would be falling even before the church bells rang vespers. The heads of his children, like gay gallant flames, made people smile as they passed."

(I prefer to add 4 lines. Makes things more interesting!)

Your turn!

When Eduard Raban, coming along the passage, walked into the open doorway, he could now see how it was raining. It wasn't raining much.

The next morning the other kids got on the bus, Wanda threw up without me, and I lay on the couch while mom packed the green suitcase. My hands shook as I dressed Casper the Ghost in pale green doll pajamas and white socks.

The author's use of description is powerful. Don't tease me. Tell me something about this book. PLEASE!!

Ms. K @ Write On Thyme said...

Relyn~ An interesting romance/historical fiction. Not the best I've ever read but entertaining. I'm not much of a romance reader but still enjoyed.
