Teaser Tuesdays: Eucalyptus

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading.

Grab 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!

Eucalyptus by Murray Bail p. 32

"Word of Ellen spread gradually from the town and across the paddocks and hills; she was unzipped by the railway line to other country towns; to the suburbs of Sydney; faint aftershocks reaching distant capitals of other states and other countries. And the idea of her beauty grew with its scarcity value."

I like the book much more than Ellen is featured. The Latin names of the thousands of types of eucalyptus trees is wearing on me.
