Tuesday Teaser-January 5, 2010

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

The Day the Falls Stood Still by Cathy Marie Buchanan
From the back cover..."The year is 1915, the dawn of the hydroelectric era in Niagra Falls, Seventeen-year-old Bess Heath has led a life of comfort and ease as the younger daughter of the director of the Niagra Power Company. But when a tragedy leaves her beautiful sister dead and her family disgraced, Bess's life is transformed beyond imagination."

From Page..28

"Last week I told him I could smell the whiskey on him," Isabel says, "He said I sounded like a prohibitionist, and I said if prohibition meant keeping fathers sober, then, war or no war, maybe I was."

This sounds like an interesting book. I like the fact that you included a little from the back cover. That helps a lot.

Here is my teaser
Have a great week and happy reading.
