Miz B and Teaser Tuesdays asks you to:
Grab your current read. Let the book fall open to a random page.
Share with us two sentences from somewhere on that page. Be careful not to include spoilers.
You also need to include the title and author of the book that you're getting the "teaser" from... that way people can add it to their TBR lists if they like the teaser you've given.
This week's teaser comes from Villette (1853) by Currer Bell (Charlotte Bronte).
From Chapter IX, Isidore:
Mrs. Cholmondeley - her chaperon - a gay, fashionable lady, invited her whenever she had company at her own house, and sometimes took her to evening-parties at the houses of her acquaintance. Ginevra perfectly approved this mode of procedure: it had but one inconvenience; she was obliged to be well dressed, and she had not money to buy variety of dresses. All her thoughts turned on this difficulty ; her whole soul was occupied with expedients for effecting its solution. It was wonderful to witness the activity of her otherwise indolent mind on this point, and to see the much-daring intrepidity to which she was spurred by a sense of necessity, and the wish to shine.
