Teaser Tuesday #1

Tuesday, April 10, 2012 with 5 comments
Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• 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!


This week's teaser comes from the following book:

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Goodreads
Title:  The Springsweet
Author:  Saundra Mitchell
Series:  2nd book in The Vespertine series
Publisher:  Harcourt Children's Books, an imprint of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Publication Date:  April 17, 2012
Source:  ARC

Heartbroken over the tragic death of her fiancé, seventeen-year-old Zora Stewart leaves Baltimore for the frontier town of West Glory, Oklahoma, to help her young widowed aunt keep her homestead going. There she discovers that she possesses the astonishing ability to sense water under the parched earth. When her aunt hires her out as a “springsweet” to advise other settlers where to dig their wells, Zora feels the burden of holding the key to something so essential to survival in this unforgiving land. Even more, she finds herself longing for love the way the prairie thirsts for water. Maybe, in the wildness of the territories, Zora can finally move beyond simply surviving and start living.


My teaser:

"Please know, Miss Stewart, I didn't follow you to the ball, I was there anyway.  When I saw you come in, I thought, well, I had assumed --" p. 107


Hmmm...my daddy always told me never to assume anything.  It'll get you into trouble every time.  :)
