Teaser Tuesday and Where Are You? 06-16-09: The Woman in White

Should Be Reading - Miz B - hosts this weekly event. We throw out a couple of sentences from our current read (without spoilers, of course) to entice you to read the book.

From The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins, page 193:
The main body of the building is of the time of that highly-overrated woman, Queen Elizabeth. On the ground floor there are two hugely long galleries, with low ceilings lying parallel with each other, and rendered additionally dark and dismal by hideous family portraits - every one of which I should like to burn.

It's Tuesday, Where Are You? is hosted by an adventure in reading.

It's 1850 and I'm at Blackwater Park, Hampshire, England. My sister Laura has married Sir Percival Glyde and I am living with them at his estate.
