Teaser Tuesday: Sixteen Brides by Stephanie Grace Whitson

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

1. Grab your current read.
2. Open to a random page.
3. Share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
4. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!).
5. Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teaser:
Sixteen Brides
She was not one to cause a ruckus, but as Will Haywood pulled his wagon to a halt in front of Jeb Cooper's place, Caroline wondered -- almost aloud -- if westerners really did have a different dictionary than the rest of the world. Folks seemed to agree that "near town" could mean as much as a day's drive away, and Martha had already said that "spring" could mean "snow." And yesterday she had used "cozy" to describe life in a soddy. That was not the word that came to mind as Caroline stared at the dead bits of grass sticking out between the mud-brick walls that were Jeb Cooper's house. "Interesting ornamentation," she muttered, and nodded toward the roof, where several rather impressive sets of antlers lay atop hand-hewn shingles. Well. At least the roof was decent. If it didn't leak. - pg. 96, Sixteen Brides by Stephanie Grace Whitson
