“To allow a complete stranger – albeit a relation – to take over responsibility for her life, to remove from everything she had ever known or expected; to come to London, a city, so she had always been taught, full not only of great events and excitement, but also great wickedness, to be expected to take part in the fashionable world; all this filled Isabelle with misgivings. Unused to the world, ignorant of fashionable life and habits, and conscious of lack of personal beauty to recommend her, she felt very doubtful of her future.“
From page 21 (The Philips Park Press 1978) of Damask Rose.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- 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!
