Teaser Tuesday and Where Are You? 01-05-10: The Mammoth Cheese

Should Be Reading - Miz B - hosts this weekly event. We throw out a couple of sentences from our current read (without spoilers, of course) to entice you to read the book.

This week my teaser is from The Mammoth Cheese by Sheri Holman, page 42:

The large room was dark and still. Even after nearly two hours, the tall, weather-beaten man who spoke had not found comfort with his voice, never made for public speaking in the first place, which came out whistle-thin, as if someone had siphoned off half of it before it reached his lips.

It's Tuesday, Where Are You? is hosted by an adventure in reading.

I'm in Three Chimneys, Virginia, about to embark on a mammoth cheese making endeavor (1,235 pounds worth).

It's been a while since I've been to your blog. I see you've made some changes - very nice.

Your teaser is from a book I'm unfamiliar with. From the cover it looks slightly political - but making cheese doesn't sound political.
