Hello, I’m Olivia. Where am I? At home – The Lodge in Little Compton. It’s my seventeenth birthday today. We have just had breakfast and i have opened my presents: a roll of flame coloured silk for my first evening dress, an ornament, a diary to record my secrets and a ten shilling note!
It’s Tuesday, where are you? is hosted by raidergirl3.
Just quote a couple of spoiler-free sentences the book you’re reading to tempt other readers.
Here is mine:-
“Her windows looked west over part of the lawn to the walnut tree with the swing in it, and some beds of massed shrubbery, and behind them the belt of elms dividing the garden from rough fields; and beyond it all, low grass fields and ploughed lands flowing away with their telegraph poles and haystacks into the distance. There had been gales; and now every branch was bare at last; December-naked; but today a carved quietness in the tree-tops, a luminous quality glowing secretly behind the white veil of air, promised the weather she liked best: windless, mild, faintly suffused with sun.”

Oh, I like that one. Just love descriptive writing like that to put the reader right into the scene.

I like this – another book to add to the list of books to look out for.
Seems like an interesting book. The cover is nice too.
What a beautiful description! Thanks for sharing it.
My teaser is here.
So descriptive, great teaser! Thanks for sharing! =)
Sounds like a lovely place to be whether you are seventeen or not. The writing is sounds poetic.
Here in Cleveland our trees are December naked, Januare bare, February nude, March stripped, and sometimes April unclad!
I’ve heard of this book, love your teaser selection; will have a closer look…
Lovely teaser and great where are you. I’ve just added this book to my wish list. Thanks
“…luminous quality glowing secretly behind the white veil…” – That is so evocative. Great choice!
Going to check this one out.
(sigh) you had me at the walnut tree with the swing in it!
This sounds good!!
It does sound like a nice place.
