Teaser Tuesday - March 12

Teaser Tuesday

The rules are:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) 'teaser' sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title and author of the book that you’re getting your 'teaser' from .. that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you've given!

The bedroom doors of Dartington Hall are of a certain thickness and I could by no means hear complete exchanges, consequently it is hard for me now to recall precisely what I overheard, just as, indeed, it was for me later that same evening when I reported to his lordship on the matter.
What the butler heard.. from Kazuo Ishiguro's getting under the skin of the 1930's English ruling class in The Remains of the Day -our book group book of the month.
