Teaser Tuesdays: The Woman in White


Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading

Grab your current read. Open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins p. 64

"Judging by the ordinary rules of evidence, I had not the shadow of a reason, thus far, for connecting Sir Percival Glyde with the suspicious words of inquiry that had been spoken to me by the woman in white. And yet, I did connect him with them."

Why was the woman in white suspicious of Sir Percival? Is it in fact Sir Percival she is suspicious of? Who is the woman in white?

I find the teaser sentence funny also because it reflects Wilkie Collins's trained profession, a lawyer. The character is a painting instructor, and I don't know if he would know this exactly.
