Because this is one of my most favorite books from one of my most favorite authors. Mary Stewart is better known for her Merlin books, but she wrote Gothics too. Funny, an old Mills & Boon romance, Crown of Willow, sort of parallels this book -- same name for the hero, same Cinderella-at-the-ball and illicit midnight feast scene. O_O

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
* 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!
