(They are cute, aren't they)? ;-) I'm also somewhat tempted to tell Alice's brother's story - Bart. The problem is that I don't write quickly, and I have a couple of special projects I'm working on, plus the Daughters of the Gentry series to finish, plus an idea for a new series. So it will all depend on whether I can be more efficient than I've been in the past. I've currently got 4 teens in the house, which probably contributes to my slowish pace.

Thanks so much for wanting to read their stories!(less)

A Most Happy Thanksgiving to you

Hi friends, let me start by saying …

I mean, I’m not ordering you to be grateful or thankful or anything like that, but ’tis the season to at least consider it. Sometimes it can be good to force the focus on gratitude a little because it does shift one’s perspective. I find it otherwise exceedingly easy to complain.

Here are a few things I, personally am grateful for.

Our house is, at last, compl

A Fall from Grace is a sweet Cinderella-story of a Regency romance, with threads of Austen and Heyer. Jennie Goutet’s writing admirably evokes the era, giving her characters a romantic—and believable—happily-ever-after." Read more of this review »

“turned from the stables and strode back to the”
Jennie Goutet, His Disinclined Bride

“have you completely forgotten this word of encouragement that addresses you as a father addresses his son? It says, ‘My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you, because the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.’ Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.” Hebrews 12:5-7 & 11”
Jennie Goutet, A Lady in France

“And last, but not least, I had to abandon my autonomy in favor of obedience to God. That lesson was the hardest learned.”
Jennie Goutet, A Lady in France
