Teaser Tuesday - Lady of Ashes, by Christine Trent

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just:
* 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 and author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their To Be Read (TBR) Lists if they like your teasers!


As you know, I'm reading Lady of Ashes, by Christine Trent, and quite enjoying it!  This Tease makes me glad I'm not a woman living in the 1800's.

The Tease:

"Thankfully, after nearly three hours of questioning, Violet was permitted to leave.  She needed to return home immediately and get out of her corset, as she hadn't been breathing in more than short gasps all day.  The boning was probably permanently imprinted on her skin."
