Teaser Tuesday- When Venus Fell

teasertuesdays31Grab 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!

This was no small thing, in the southern sense of that word.  If a person visited a home in the South for any length of time, whether for a mere one-night stay or weeks, months, even years of habitation, that visitor achieved the status of Company, meaning he or she received deluxe treatment.

This is my final book for the Southern Reading Challenge and I am really enjoying it!  So, what pages are you turning this week?

    I’ve been to the South a few times on business, and while I didn’t stay at a personal residence, I was charmed with the friendliness of people I met. Just goes to show there are nice people everywhere! Great teaser.

    Well, at least in my southern family, it is an honor to be Company – and the Teaser you selected sums up the definition of Company perfectly. So I would say that the old charms of the South are still the same. I’ll let you know if any of that has changed when I become their Company this fall when we return for a visit!

    Yes, having lived in the South most of my life, I can say that’s definitely true. Company always gets special treatment – and that can be both a good and a bad thing. Sounds like an interesting book, though.
