A Walk at Rosings Pt II
Has it been a month already? Time for the next excerpt from my short story, but if you are new to these posts, here are links to the previous posts: What if?, What if? Part II, The Letter, Elizabeth’s Perspective, and A Walk at Rosings. Are you ready to hear Mr. Darcy’s explanation? They walked…
A Walk at Rosings
Back for the next installment of my short story. For those of you just joining us, here are the links to the earlier posts which have led to today: What if?, What if? Part II, The Letter, and Elizabeth’s Perspective. If you are all caught up, here is the latest addition: Elizabeth slipped soundlessly from…
He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not, He Loves Me!
Sending or bringing someone flowers has ever made the recipient feel special. But for a fastidious gentleman following the rules of polite society and not wanting to excite expectations, what bouquet might he gift a young lady of his new acquaintance?

P & P & LOL
Previously, I posted some Pride and Prejudice text conversations, and for this post, I’m giving that another go…again with P&P. This is totally and completely because I love that book and not at all because I couldn’t think of anything clever for the other books. Like last time, assume I’m about a decade behind in…
Life Lessons, Courtesy of Miss Austen
