Nanette, thanks so much for reading and sharing your thoughts!

I was inspired to write this because I wished to go back in time myself and meet Jane Austen, but realized it was impossible, at least with our current technology. :) I could only imagine doing so, in a story.

The research took several years, in between other things because I also have a job unrelated to Austen and the 19th century. I wanted it to feel as real as possible, so there were lots of things I needed to learn.(less)

Review: John Eyre

 

I love 19th-century British literature, and lately I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about the world and the works of the Brontes in particular. So I was honored to be invited to write about “John Eyre” as part of a virtual book tour for its author, Mimi Matthews.

 As the title suggests, “John Eyre” is an homage to “Jane Eyre,” a novel that created a sensation as soon as it came out in 1847 an

Kathleen Flynn is 63% done with The Karamazov Brothers: There is so much in this book about the 3,000 rubles. It's like Mr. Darcy's 10,000 pounds a year. A big deal, and yet so mysterious. What could you buy with 3,000 rubles? What did the average person earn at this period in Russia? Answers please.

“The last impression will have been good—one woman rendering homage to a poet and another mopping spilt coffee from the trousers of a critic. Things like that aren’t as trivial as you might think.”
Barbara Pym, Jane and Prudence

“Prudence’s flat was in the kind of block where Jane imagined people might be found dead, though she had never said this to Prudence herself; it seemed rather a macabre fancy and not one to be confided to an unmarried woman living alone.”
Barbara Pym, Jane and Prudence

“She had been feeling that things were pretty desperate if one found oneself talking about and almost quoting Matthew Arnold to comparative strangers, though anything was better than having to pretend you had winter and summer curtains when you had just curtains.”
Barbara Pym, Jane and Prudence

“Jane wanted to agree and to offer him the broken dwarf, perhaps for Constance’s grave, as a kind of comment on the futility of earthly love, but instead she said gently, ‘You must make Jessie happy. That will be the right thing for you now.”
Barbara Pym, Jane and Prudence

“It is evening.  I have dismissed, with the fee of an orange, the little orphan who serves me as a handmaid. ”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
