Teaser Tuesdays / It’s Tuesday, where are you ?


Just quote a couple of spoiler-free sentences the book you’re reading to tempt other readers.

Here is mine:-

“Among the many fatalities attending the bloom of young desire, that of blindly taking to the confectionery line has not, perhaps, been sufficiently considered. How is the son of a British yeoman, who has been fed principally on salt pork and yeast dumplings, to know that there is a satiety for the human stomach even in a paradise of pink jars full of sugared almonds and pink lozenges, and that the tedium of life can reach a pitch where plum buns at discretion cease to offer the slightest enticement?”

I am visiting Brigford with my uncle. He is a butler at the great house. We have seen the most wonderful shop, and now I am quite certain that I must become a confectioner. Confectionery is so beutiful to behold and provides the very best of eating. Confectioners must be the happiest and the foremost of men.

  1. Wonderful teaser! And a bit of an obscure book, isn’t it? But all that confectionery sounds soooo tasty! Actually, even the salt pork and yeast dumplings sound pretty good right now – it’s been a long time since lunch!
