Here is my teaser,

'Outside, we milled about in the lane while Neil reversed the farm pickup truck in the back of which Great- Aunt Mary was to travel to the crematorium, driven by my father and accompanied by Uncle Peter. I saw that someone had thought to brush out the back of the truck of the usual litter of straw and sheep nuts and had laid a tartan rug over the metal floor on which Great -Aunt Mary now rested, like a giant picnic, in her wicker coffin. This unorthodox ultimate journey had been arranged because she disliked unnecessary expense and had a deep suspicion of funeral directors, whom she considered thieves.'

from page 9, 'Footprints in the Sand' by Sarah Challis.
