Teaser Tuesday - Jan 19th

Today's teaser comes from Fireworks over Toccoa by Jeffrey Stepakoff.  The book revolves around a young woman waiting for her husband to come home at the end of World War II.  She meets a man who is hired to do the fireworks display for the town and he changes everything. 

From page 62

Lily had this kind of conversation so often that she felt she could produce these words about her mother with the same involuntary regularity that many of her friends took air in and out.  Ever since she could remember, people asked, first and foremost, about her parents, her mother in particular.
