Teaser Tuesdays -August 10

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!

My teaser this week comes from a book that I have wanted for years. It was originally printed in 1893!!! It's actually a book of short stories, but some characters from some of the author's other novels have popped up again. Thank you to Dodo Press for bringing back old, rare, out-of-print books.

Nine Little Goslings by Susan Coolidge

'Like a little moth attracted by a flame, Dick wandered down the stair in the direction of the light. The candle was standing on the table in a bedroom, - a pretty room, Dickie thought, though it did not seem as if anybody could have lived in it lately.'
