Tuesday Teaser

Teaser Tuesday 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
In a comment, 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

Here's mine:

“As you know, I have the greatest admiration and deepest love for my dear friend, but her path is not one I think it is wise for any young girl to follow. The baroness and I have agreed that it is best that Lili not be told the more -- oh, how shall I say it? -- salacious details of her mother’s life, and that her achievements in science should not overpower the more conventional view of what accomplishments are appealing in a woman.”

Finding Emilie by Laurel Corona, p. 12


  1. This sounds amazing! I'm off to search for it on Amazon!
    Here's my TT. It's historical fiction too:

  2. Based on the teaser the book sounds wonderful. Are you enjoying it? My TT: http://www.rundpinne.com/2011/04/teaser-tuesdays-the-kitchen-daughter.html

  3. Historically women had a role and it sounds as if this woman, was doing that which was against the norm. Science, indeed! Great teaser!

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  4. Luckily, this book is actually in favor of women's rights and it, in fact, endorses education and decent employment for women. Thank goodness!

  5. Oh, this does sound awesome...thanks for sharing.

    Here's MY TT POST

  6. Hi Yvonne,

    Thanks for stopping by my site and commenting, it is much appreciated. Great to 'meet' you.

    My mother called me Yvonne, way back in the late 1950s, as she thought that, being of French origin, it was an unusual name that could not be shortened, as cruel schoolchildren are prone to do.

    How wrong could she have been, there were two other Yvonne's in my year at Junior school and the name was immediately shortened to Eve, Vonny or Bonny. Ugh!!!

    I love your teaser lines this week and after reading the full synopsis, this book has made it straight onto my wish list. I only read historical romance on the odd occasion, but this one sounds like it has a great twist in the tale, that sets it apart as something special.

    Thanks for sharing.



I'd love to know what you're thinking!
Leave me a comment and I'll return in kind :-)
