Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Should Be Reading. Here’s how it works:

Grab your current read

Open to a random page

Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

“The wild black river roared below us, edged in silver lace. Cold air rushed up under our skirts. The water wheel turned at the side with its dripping buckets, yet we saw no one.”

— On Agate Hill, Lee Smith pg. 74 & 75
