Teaser Tuesday~~A Breath of Snow and Ashes


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



Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
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!)
Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!



With An Echo in the Bone coming out today I thought I'd do a Teaser from Diana Gabaldon's last Oulander book~~ A Breath of Snow and Ashes~~ a little longer than a teaser but I just can't resist.Next week we'll have An Echo in the Bone!

page 584- I was scolded by everyone in sight, including young Ian, frog-marched upstairs virtually by the scruff of the neck, and thrust forcibly back into bed, where, I was given to understand, I should be lucky to be given bread and milk for my supper. The most annoying aspect of the whole situation was Thomas Christie, standing at the foot of the stairs with a mug of beer in his hand, watching as I was led off, and wearing the only grin I had ever seen on his hairy face.
"What in the name of God possessed ye, Sassenach?" Jamie jerked back the quilt gestured, peremptorily at the sheets.
"Well, I felt quite well and-"
" Well! Ye're the color of bad buttermilk, and trembling so ye can scarcely-- here, let me do that." Making snorting noises, he pushed my hands away from the laces of my petticoats, and had them off me in a thrice.
