My Teasers:

'Signs of the once placid domestic life of the city- a bit of knitting, an intact chair, a Christmas wreath, a fan of papers --- were strewn over the streets. Innes hope the girl beside him would not retain the images now forming on her retina.'

from 'A Wedding in December' by Anita Shreve, page 175.

I read Testimony earlier this year, and will definitely be reading more Shreve - she's very good.

Good teaser. I'll watch for a review! I've read a few by Shreve.

Great teaser! I love Anita Shreve. I'll have to add this one to my list!

Great choice of teaser. I'll be interested to know what you think of the book.

Wonderful teaser! I really want to read this book. I haven't read any Anita Shreve, but I've got several of her books on my TBR list for this year, including Testimony - although that one got sort of mixed reviews.

That is a really descriptive teaser. It helps picture of the scene they are in and wondering what is going on (for those of us not reading the book).

It is very descriptive. Is that me knitting?
