Teaser Tuesday: Behind a Mask by Louisa May Alcott

19 Jan

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 book this week is Behind a Mask by Louisa May Alcott, a novella in the sensation fiction genre.  I thought this was better with the third sentence, so I left it in.

When alone Miss Muir’s conduct was decidedly peculiar.  Her first act was to clench her hands and mutter between her teeth, with passionate force, “I’ll not fail again if there is power in a woman’s wit and will!”  She stood a moment motionless, with an expression of almost fierce disdain on her face, then shook her clenched hand as if menacing some unseen enemy.

    Other than Little Women, I haven’t reach much Alcott. Maybe I should! Good teaser.

      Ok…this was supposed to be in response to the French History challenge, but it’s late and I’m tired and I hit the wrong comment button. But you get my drift, right?
