Teaser Tuesday... For Your Tomorrow...

"A Hundred and fifty meters from the road, a squat earthen hut sits within the maze of vines.  It's normally used for turning green grapes into sweet raisins.  But for the men in the turbans, this grape-drying hut is a bunker.  The ventilation slits in its meter-thick walls make perfect ports for firing and surveillance."

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of  Should Be Reading.




I wish I could say I'm reading this on my e reader, but I've just not gotten the hang of that, so it's a hardcover book.  One of my New Years resolutions is to read one book a month on e reader, and learn to audio read.  Next one maybe?

P.S. Much like many of you this is a difficult read it's just so "now".  I just feel I need to understand what's going on.

Thank you for stopping by Fire & Ice
