Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two "teaser" sentences from that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! You don't want to ruin the book for others!
* Share the title and author so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!

The Painted Veil is a classic by W.Somerset Maugham. The story is about a beautiful young woman named Kitty Fane, who unsatisfied with her marriage starts an affair with charming Charles Townsend. When her husband Walter finds out, he sets out a vengeance—Kitty must follow him to his new posting as a bacteriologist in remote mainland China to fight the cholera epidemic.

‘Why don’t you go to him and throw yourself on his mercy? If he’s as much in love with you as you say he’s bound to forgive you.’
‘How little you know him!’
