Posts on Life in the Massachusetts Bay Colony

[image error]



It’s Thanksgiving week here in the U.S., with the official holiday this Thursday. To celebrate, I thought I’d share the links to my posts on life in Colonial Massachusetts. True, the Salem Witch Trials occurred in 1692, while the settlers we celebrate on Thanksgiving arrived earlier that century. True, most of what we know about “the first Thanksgiving” isn’t correct. Even so, the...

Thank you Sophia! I'm so glad you liked it! Persuasion is wonderful, isn't it? It's always in the shadows of Pride and Prejudice, but in a lot of ways I think Persuasion is so much more romantic. Thank you for your kind words. You made my day!


Sophia Hi Meredith!

I just had to tell you how much I really enjoyed Her Dear and Loving Husband. I put up reviews, but I forgot to mention in my review that I was ecstatic when I saw my favorite Jane Austen Persuasion make an appearance. Oh Yes! Loved it!
