'The Mystery of Mrs Blencarrow' and 'Queen Eleanor and Fair Rosamund' are both stories about women left on their own to run their own households. Each ends, not with a marriage as is usual, but with the break-up of a marriage.

OMG, Mariann!! What a wonderful, wonderful surprise to find in my mailbox! ❤️❤️ You chose a Persephone for me that I DON‘T own (and had just added to my “want” list while going through the catalogue again 😆)! I‘m so excited about the Austen book; it looks fantastic. I love the little British bookmarks and especially enjoyed your sweet letter.


Thanks so much for thinking of me on your recent trip, my friend!! 😘😘😘

Published in the late 19th Century, this is a recent read for me. There are actually two mystery novellas in this one tome. Both feature strong, central, female characters who suffer at the hands of men, yet find ways to overcome.

BookishFeminist Yes!! #booksnbucks let's make it a thing. I'm a failboat- I got books n bucks but got a tea latte instead. Fixing that later because I can't not have coffee on #NationalCoffeeDay! 3y
