Teaser Tuesday - Dec 15

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!
This might have lasted half a minute, or a minute, but it seemed an hour. The bells ceased as they had begun together. They were succeeded by a clanking noise, deep down below; as if some person were dragging a heavy chain over the casks in the wine-merchants cellar.
Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, I thought the 3rd sentence continued the teaser nicely. Well enough known for the passage I've quoted to be identified easily? Seasonal reading for our book group, it's been many years since I read this, a vivid description of social conditions in the 1800s but sometimes over-flowery!
