#Pemberlittens Posting #janeandtheexcellentreadalong
early because I've got a lot on tomorrow.

1️⃣ Invitation to Chatsworth
2️⃣“My good fellow—if you do not leave off that dreadful noise at once, I shall be forced to call you out; and though it has been my habit, in affairs of honour, never to aim for the heart—in your case, my dear sir, I should be sorely tempted.”
3️⃣ Cassandra with the Chamberpot ⬇️

Crinoline_Laphroaig 4️⃣ The End. Last time I read this was for #JaneAndTheYear2020 and I had forgotten. This is normal for me. I remember character storylines but the killer I forget. Which is nice because reveal is a surprise.
5️⃣ Stillroom Maid Recipes. I really enjoyed them tucked into story.
6️⃣ Eat nothing but that doesn't mean I can't have Whisky becore bed. Plus if I have a good night's sleep I feel like I can do anything. ⬇️

Crinoline_Laphroaig 7️⃣ Having had mother who sounded a lot like Mrs Austen I am really good at tuning that out. Really loud music or in this case singing gets on my nerves after awhile.
8️⃣ Picnic in the garden. While enjoyed see the house when we visited Chatsworth, I loved the gardens.
9️⃣ This is one of my favorites in the Series because of having been to Chatsworth I can just see those scenes in my mind.

Just me reading books about Jane Austen, or books based on her books, but still not reading Jane Austen. Here strong minded and feminist Anne Sharp, fallen in status to be governess to Fanny Austen, strikes up a bond and friendship with Jane. It‘s heartbreaking watching Anne‘s fortunes constantly being determined by those “above” her in both gender and class, yet so refreshing to read a book about a burgeoning friendship between women. A good read

This was a beautiful book inside and out. I loved this story mixing fiction with real people. The writing style is so enjoyable. I hope she writes another Jane Austen inspired book

I needed some time to think about this review. Overall I enjoyed the premise, even though the characters got on my nerves. But I think the ending ultimately soured my impression. I wanted more explanation about the future and it all just seemed rushed. I'm glad I read this with the #pemberlittens though, it was enjoyable to share the experience with everyone. Thanks @StayCurious for hosting

Clwojick Great match! Way to go! 2d

I just love this advise from the Stillroom Book; early doctoring at its best! “Where‘s the beef?” 🐄🥩

Thank you #permberlittens for the read-a-long. It was a clever idea, but I found the overall pace very slow. An intriguing ending that I think was the right one, some of the choices made by the characters did have me sighing in frustration.

Also, I keep comparing Rachel to Irene from The Invisible Library series. Unfavourably.

Mrs_B Thank you @StayCurious for your excellent hosting! 4d
