Teaser Tuesdays


MizB of Should Be Reading hosts Teaser Tuesdays. Anyone can play along. Just do the following:

*Grab your current read.
*Open to a random page.
*Share two "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page.
*BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! You don't want to spoil the book for others.
*Share the title and author too, so other TT particpants can add it to their TBR lists if they like your teaser!

Here's mine from The Eustace Diamonds by Anthony Trollope (pp 68-9)

The reader, who has read so far, will perhaps think that Frank Greystock was in love with Lucy as Lucy was in love with him. But such was not exactly the case. To be in love, as an absolute, well-marked, acknowledged fact, is the condition of a woman more frequently and more readily than of a man.

That just doesn't sound very nice at all...

My teaser this week is from : Sarah’s Choice.

But the thing is...I really do think Frank IS in love with Lucy and ol' Anthony Trollope is trying to pull the wool over his readers' eyes.

Humph!

Well, attitudes have changed since this was written.

Yes, I think that may very well be true, even today. It's been much too long since I read anything by Trollope. Maybe I'll try to do somethings about that this year. Great teaser!

Oh...and I've read the book now. I was right (she said smugly), Frank WAS in love with Lucy.
