It’s Tuesday, Where Are You? / Teaser Tuesdays

It’s Tuesday, Where Are You?

I’m in a seaside town in Victorian England, living with an antique-dealing aunt while my parents are in India.

The Secret Woman by Victoria Holt.

Teaser Tuesdays TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us 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!

It was one morning in the middle of the summer holidays, about four years after my parents had brought me to England, when Ellen came to my room and told me that Aunt Charlotte wished to see me at once. Ellen looked scared and I asked if anything was wrong.

From The Secret Woman by Victoria Holt, p. 17.


  1. Victorian England and being summoned by an Aunt, could mean trouble ahead. Interesting teaser

  2. Interesting teaser. I love historical fiction! Thanks for visiting my TT!

  3. You take me back to junior high, when I discovered Victoria Holt. Oh, I loved her. That was when I also discovered Mary Stewart and Phyllis Whitney. Re-read some of them in recent years...

    This is from Robert Fripp's "Power of a Woman," about Eleanor of Aquitaine (read it for Book Club -- just marvelous and I learned so much!). She was married to Louis VII and Henry II -- French and English, respectively, and was quite the woman. Here's a teaser, as she is dictating her memoirs, which is what the book is:

    "Kings have lain me. But what man can claim me?"

  4. Ooh I wonder what's going on here. Great teaser. I have two more this week at The Crowded Leaf.
