Where Are You?/Teaser Tuesday

tuesdaywhereareyou

 It’s Tuesday, Where Are You? is hosted by an adventure in reading.

Today is 5 December 1942 and I’m at Porter’s in a little side street off the Strand in London, with Mr Craven. It’s Thursday evening and we’re sitting under the bust of Mrs Siddon talking quietly, holding hands under the tablecloth.

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.

Share a couple or more sentences from the book you’re currently reading. 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!

And please avoid spoilers!

My teaser is from page 114 of Good Evening, Mrs Craven: the Wartime Stories of  Mollie Panter-Downes:

They always enjoyed the joke that the waiter supposed they were married. It went with the respectability of Porter’s that any nice couple who dined together continuously over a long period of time should be thought of as husband and wife. ‘We’re one in the sight of God and Mrs Siddon’s,’ he said, but although she laughed, it wasn’t a joke with her. She liked being called Mrs Craven.

  1. Your teaser makes me wish to know more! I like Wartime stories.

    As you too go for different kind of books, you will like Colin Cotterill. He writes Thrillers/Mystery books with a bit of shaman elements. Once one gets into the hang of it, his books make real engrossing reads. This is my second book and I am already into the third one!

  3. Mollie Panter Downes’s other book of short stories, the ‘peacetime’ one, is probably the best anthology I’ve ever read. I’ve got the wartime ones too, just not got to them yet.
