Teaser Tuesdays are hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. To play along,
My teaser this week is from Fingersmith, by Sarah Waters. The description, via Amazon, is a “hypnotic suspense novel is awash with all manner of gloomy Dickensian leitmotifs: pickpockets, orphans, grim prisons, lunatic asylums, ‘laughing villains,’ and, of course, ‘stolen fortunes and girls made out to be mad.’ Divided into three parts, the tale is narrated by two orphaned girls whose lives are inextricably linked.”
I am seventeen when Richard Rivers comes to Briar with a plot and a promise and the story of a gullible girl who can be fooled into helping me do it.
If you haven’t read Fingersmith, I HIGHLY recommend it. Review coming soon!
