Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Should Be Reading. Here's how you play:

* 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 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!
* Please avoid spoilers!

My teaser this week:
"I believe you will find that the number of ancestors that should be represented here is exactly four thousand and ninety six." She raised her hand in the same weary gesture. "But here there are only a few Sir Edgars and their wives." Her eyes swept over Dido in chilling triumph. She turned to go. "I say again, Miss Kent, that there is not only one portrait missing from this gallery."

And how are you enjoying Bellfield Hall?

Maybe she should look for the missing portraits in the attic? Some ancestors don't deserve wall space.
