Teaser Tuesdays - November 2

Teaser Tuesdays 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!

More Precious Than Silver by Joni Eareckson Tada

'The wind shifts in October, carrying on the breeze the scennt of a seasoned-wood fire from a neighbor's chimney. Lean out your window, draw a deep breath, and you can smell the scent of pine from a nearby woods. Or someone baking an apple pie next door. I love this time of year because of the wonderful new aromas in the air. It's amazing how a scent - even a fragrance - evokes powerful feelings.'

Ok, so it's a month later, and in the southern hemisphere we are just gearing up for summer, but you get the general idea.

That's what I miss living in the desert - the smell of trees and especially the smell of wood burning :) Great teaser.
