Don Jacobson | 34 comments Greetings,

I have tried to once again add a boo to my profile...unsuccessfully. The book has been "out" for over two weeks on Amazon as an exclusive, so I assumed the add would be fairly speedy. I tried just now to do it manually. As before, I probably messed it up.

Anyway, could you check to see if you could add the following book to my profile?

Title: The Pilgrim: Lydia Bennet and a Soldier's Portion (Bennet Wardrobe #7)
Author: Don Jacobson
ISBN: 9781687548061
Publication Date: August, 2019
Format: Print, e-book
Description: “My life has been very much like an unfinished painting. The artist comes to the portrait day-after-day to splash daubs of color onto bare canvas, filling in the blanks of my story. Thus grows the likeness, imperfect as it may be, which you see today.” Lydia Fitzwilliam, Countess of Matlock, letter to her sister Elizabeth Bennet Darcy, March 14, 1831.

Does it matter how a man fills out his regimentals? Miss Austen never considered that query. Yet, this question marks the beginning of an education…and the longest life…in the Bennet Wardrobe saga.

Lydia Bennet, Longbourn’s most wayward daughter, embarks on her quest in The Pilgrim: Lydia Bennet and a Soldier’s Portion. This biography reveals how the Wardrobe helps young Mrs. Wickham learn that honor and bravery grow not from the color of the uniform—or the gender of its wearer—but rather from the contents of the heart.

In the process, she realizes that she must be broken and repaired, as if by a kintsugi master potter, to become the most useful player in the Bennet Wardrobe’s great drama.

The Pilgrim explores questions of love, loss, pain, worry, and perseverance. All of these are brought to bear as one of the silliest girls in England grows into the Dowager Countess.

This 151,000-word novel is the seventh, and next-to-last, volume in the Bennet Wardrobe Series. Each book along the way has revealed more about how the mysterious Wardrobe has led Miss Austen’s Bennets to learn that which they need in order to take part in its ultimate mission.

Page Count: Print: 550 e-book: 465 pages

Thank you, Don Jacobson

I moved the book to your profile. When you add a new book of yours, you should put three spaces between your first and last names, that's how your profile is differentiated from others with the same name. So Don^^^Jacobson, in which each ^ is a space. Then the newly added book will land in your profile.
I also added the book to the "Bennet Wardrobe" series. Is it really book 7, as it said on the title? And if so, is there a book 5 and a book 6, that are not on Goodreads yet?
