Teaser Tuesdays 11.24.09

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading. Here's how it works:

*Grab your current read.
*Open to a random page.
*Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page.
*Include the title and author so others can add it to their TBR list.

My Teaser:

A woman with neither property nor fortune must ward off this affliction by cultivating the beauty, brilliance, and accomplishment that will blind a promising suitor to the want of a dowry. When she is securely married, she may suspend her own improvement and turn her energies toward the domestication of her husband and the acquisition of wealthy suitors for their daughters.

From Lady Vernon and Her Daughter by Jane Rubino and Caitlen Rubino-Bradway.

Yes, domesticating one's husband does take lots and lots of energy, that's for sure! Love the teaser.
