Teaser Tuesdays: Fingersmith

Posted on the 17 October 2017 by Cheekymeeky

In spite of an unpromising start, I ended up really loving Fingersmith. This is a very Dickensian tale that involves orphans, asylums, devious plots, and yes, a touching love story.

Here's a short quote that I love and which I thought conveyed the intense attraction that Sue felt for Maud really beautifully.

Teaser Tuesdays: Fingersmith

I felt that thread that had come between us, tugging, tugging at my heart - so hard, it hurt me.

A hundred times I almost rose, almost went in to her; a hundred times I thought, Go to her! Why are you waiting? Go back to her side!

But every time, I thought of what would happen if I did. I knew that I couldn't lie beside her, without wanting to touch her.

I couldn't have felt her breath upon my mouth, without wanting to kiss her.

And I couldn't have kissed her, without wanting to save her.

~ Fingersmith by Sarah Waters
