Teaser Tuesday - June 30

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!  Here's how it works:
-grab your current read
-open to a random page
-share two teaser sentences from somewhere on the page (avoid spoilers!)
-be sure to include the title and author so other TT participants can add the book to their tbr list if they like your teaser
-leave a comment with your link at Should Be Reading

My teaser:

To Those Who Appreciate Wistaria and Sunshine.
    Small mediaeval Italian Castle on the shores of the Mediterranean to be Let Furnished for the month of April.  Necessary servants remain. Z, Box 1000, The Times.   

by Elizabeth Von Arnim
