Teaser Tuesday


Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Should Be Reading. Here's how you play:* 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!

My teaser this week:

Fir bark and spruce buds were kept on the boil in a large iron cauldron, the concoction ladled into half-barrels where the twine was soaked before laid out on the bawn to cure.  A handful of boys horsing around nearby, Tryphie and Patrick Devine's eight-year-old, Eli, leading the games of pitch-and-toss and tag while the men shouted at the them to mind their step, to keep clear of the fire, to shag off home out of it.
