Teaser Tuesday, August 17, 2010

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme,
hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
Anyone can play along!

This week my teaser comes from:

Darcy's Voyage, by Kara Louise
(This quote is from an uncorrected advance copy)

Synopsis from the cover:

In this enchanting and highly original retelling of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Elizabeth Benet sets out for the new world aboard the grand ship Pemberley's Promise. She's prepared for an uneventful voyage until a chance encounter with the handsome, taciturn Mr. Darcy turns her world upside down.

"It is amazing, is it not, Darcy, how a violent storm can rise up out of calm, idle waters so unexpectedly? I am always surprised but never caught off guard. We can be travelling through what we think are tranquil waters, believing everything is going exactly as planned, heading in the exact direction we want, when in the blink of an eye, everything around us is jostled, tossed around and completely shaken up. When it has passed, we are not at all where we thought we would be when we first set out."
(page 178) Captain Wendell speaking to Mr. Darcy

Is he talking about a sea voyage or perhaps life in general? Great quote! Here's mine from Matched.
