Teaser Tuesdays

Hosted by Teaser Tuesdays is an event hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.  The object is to share a couple of lines -- no spoilers -- from your current read.  Today, my lines come from "Past Imperfect" by Julian Fellowes.

"As I have said, her privileges were great, if not unique, as  a member of the select, surviving rump of the Old World.  At that time, self-made fortunes were usually much smaller than they would be decades later and the very rich, at least those people who 'lived rich,' still tended mostly to be those who had been even richer thirty years before."

I haven't started this book but intend to this evening.  I was drawn to it because it takes place in the 1960's -- MY teenage decade.  I was also drawn to it because the author is the man who makes "Downton Abbey" possible.  It sounds like it has to be a winner. 

I just finished "The Master Quilter" by Jennifer Chiaverini and, like all her books, I hated to see it end.  I am looking forward to the next book in the series but, in the meantime, I am going to jump into "Past Imperfect".  Hope it is good!
