Inspired by the grace and beauty of the flamingo, my life reflected by my love of reading, writing and creating.

Teaser Tuesday(15): Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

My teaser:

It was now the sweetest hour of the twenty-four:-"Day, its fervid fires had wasted," and dew fell cool on panting plain and scorched summit.
~Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, pg. 279

My thoughts:

I found this book at a thrift store and I loved its vintage quality. Can you imagine paying only .45 as the going rate for this book at one time? On the inside, it seems that this book was printed in 1968. Plus, it's true on the cover as it's One of the world's great love stories.

She is pure Alice in Wonderland, and her appearance and demeanor are a nicely judged mix of the Red Queen and a flamingo.
