Teaser Tuesday



Miz B. at Should Be Reading hosts this weekly bookish meme. 
Provide a snippet (about two lines) from your current read;
just enough to tease the readers.  Include the title and author
so participants can add it to their wish lists.

My teaser is from A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolick:

The young soldier behind her had whispered in Catherine's ear and pointed as a rainbow appeared.  She could still smell, all these years later, the sweet sweat of his young body in his immaculate uniform.  She could remember it better than all the rest of her childhood, better than the mountains of Virginia that lay beyond where the rainbow shone.  (18)

My handsome husband and I started this book on our little overnight adventure; me reading to him in the car as he drove and we are really intrigued by the characters.  It is an odd book and we are only on the 4th chapter...we'll see what the rest of the pages bring.

Happy Reading!

Interesting... does the soldier ever come back or is that all there is? It makes the new land sound promising...
