The Friday 56

The Friday 56 is a bookish meme which is hosted by Freda's Voice. It's really easy (and fun!) to participate.

*Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
*Turn to page 56 and find any sentence that grabs you.
*Post that senctence with these instructions on your blog or in the comments section.
* Post a link back to Freda's Voice.
*Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST!

Here's mine from A Dangerous Affair by Caro Peacock:

"What is it about the syllabub?" I said. "Isn't that a strange thing to have in a dressing room?"

@Kathy Martin: Syllabub is a Victorian sweet (whipped cream, sugar and sherry)
