Teaser Tuesday: Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walters

"It's just that for three years Michael has rejected every idea I bring in as being too dark, too expensive, too period . . . not commercial enough. Then you come in yesterday with – no offense – the darkest, least commercial, most expensive period film I've ever heard about, and he loves it."
-- Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter (ellipses in original). This is the heroine's reaction to the hero's pitch for a movie about the Donner party.

I'm almost finished with this, just in time for Book Club on Wednesday. I loved it. Great story!

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.
