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.

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.
