Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays:  In Paradise
 
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB @ Should Be Reading. Here are the rules: grab whatever you're reading, open to a random page, select no more than two sentence (NO SPOILERS), share the title and author, and GO!
Here's the teaser for this week:
"The cold of winter afternoon falls quickly.  Toward twilight, as the witness bearers straggle back toward the town, a weak sun, smoggy red, sinks behind the cropped misshapen trees along the road.  A woman murmurs that a faint odor of burning flesh still lingers here a half century later, and someone else recalls her mother's account of a woman who had smelled her fate while approaching Oswiecim in the cattle cars." --page 61
          -----In Paradise by Peter Matthiessen

A heavy teaser today...but they can't all be light and fluffy.

Happy reading!

  2. Wow, yeah, heavy is a good description. But given the subject matter, I'm not surprised. The strong, vivid imagery is really striking so as a tease; good pick. My Teaser.
