Teaser Tuesday: Mud and Gold By Shayne Parkinson

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly book meme that I just came across last week. It is hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! All you have to do is:

-Grab your current read
-Open to a random page (note: since I read on an e-reader I type in rather than "open")
-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!

My teaser comes from the historical novel Mud and Gold by Shayne Parkinson, available on Smashwords. It is set in Australia and is part of a lengthy serious by the author:

Charlie looked at his son in amazement, and Amy knew that this time it would be hard to shelter Malcolm. ‘Hey, boy, you do as you’re told,’ he said.
