Teaser Tuesday: The Luminist

He returned to Dimbola to find Catherine in Holland House with Sir John, sipping tepid tea and bemoaning the imperfections in her photographic plates.  White lines had mysteriously appeared across some of the prints.
-- The Luminist by David Rocklin.  This is a really wonderful historic novel set in 19th Century Ceylon (now Sri Lanka). As a bonus, it is one of the beautiful editions with French flaps published by Hawthorne Books.

Rocklin is on tour with this book, in New York this week:
