Teaser Tuesday: A Heart Most Worthy by Siri Mitchell

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

1. Grab your current read.
2. Open to a random page.
3. Share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
4. 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!).
5. Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teaser:
Heart Most Worthy, A
          While Julietta was talking with Angelo, Luciana was back on Beacon Hill.She'd been sent to retrieve the sample books from Mrs. Quinn. And this time, Billy wasn't going out to The Tennis and Racquet Club, he was coming back. He jogged up the steps behind her and opened the door for her. What good fortune! What great luck!
She was wearing the same gown she'd worn the day before, an ivory color, in fabric so insubstantial it seemed to float in the air around her. It was done up with a sash that het him know that underneath all those layers she was as slender as she was lithe. He wondered anew what country she was from. Had he had the advantage of a classical education, he would have known how to speak Italian. Proper Italian. Her Italian. As it was, his mother had never let him learn it. It was the one point from which his father could never sway her.
'For what purpose?' she had always asked. 'So that he can speak to those filthy, destitute immigrants? Why should he have to learn to speak to them? They ought to be learning to speak to him.' - pg. 126, A Heart Most Worthy by Siri Mitchell
