Today's Read: Child of the Northern Spring by Persia Woolley

MizB at Should Be Reading hosts Teaser Tuesdays. Here's how it works: Grab your current read; let the book fall open to a random page; and share 2 “teaser” sentences from that page. For more teasers, click on through to MizB's blog.

Here's mine:

Dew hung heavy on the grass where the dark woods began to open into the meadows, and it scattered in a silver shower when a young hare streaked for cover. A morning mist lay on the lake and trailed from the trees crowning the islands. It blended the seen and the unseen worlds seamlessly, and a family of swans disappeared into it without a sound as we approached. (p. 15)
—From Child of the Northern Spring by Persia Woolley (Sourcebooks, November 2010)
