Teaser Tuesday & It's Tuesday, where are you? (December 23, 2008)

TEASER TUESDAYS, hosted by MizB at Should be Reading, asks you to:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!
Here's my two sentences:
"I made her half a curtsey. I did not say -- which I might have -- that she should be thankful I had not turned back at Paddington; that I wished I had turned back; and that for anyone to have had the time that I had had, in trying to get forty miles from London, perhaps went to prove that London wasn't meant to be left -- I did not say that."
page 61, Fingersmith, by Sarah Waters


I'm about 140 pages into Fingersmith, set in Victorian England.  The main character, Susan, grew up with a rough crowd of thieves in London and, as part of a confidence scheme, has been sent to Maidenhead to pose as a ladies maid.  This book is full of colorful characters and I've heard so many great things about it.  I specifically saved this book for a time when I'm off work so I can dive in and enjoy!
