This week my teaser is from Women of the Silk by Gail Tsukiyama, page 64:
The house rattled hollow in the strong, persistent winds. At night, when the winds blew, they were like voices coming through the house. Yu-sung lay in bed for hours listening to what they were saying. Sometimes she imagined them to be the voices of her daughters, returning to tell her of their lives. 'It is all right, Ma Ma,' they told her. But when she sat up slowly, so as not to disturb Pao, and listened harder for their distant voices, the noise was simply the winds of a storm approaching.
It's Tuesday, Where Are You? is hosted by an adventure in reading.
It's 1925 and I'm in Yung Kee, China working in a silk factory.
