Crinoline_Laphroaig 1️⃣ I put off finishing because from #JaneandtheYear2020 knew Lord Harold, The Gentleman Rogue dies at the end. Even knowing it's coming still had me 😭

2️⃣ As a #Janeite I know Jane's life story. Had she married we would probably have never gotten her books. But still I want her and Lord Harold to have secretly wed, continuing to solve mysteries, and Jane still having time to writing books. One can dream.

Crinoline_Laphroaig 3️⃣ Jaarold doesn't seem to be grand enough. I

4️⃣ Really liked brother Frank in this one. He's again added another word to my vocabulary - havey- cavey.
Crinoline_Laphroaig 5️⃣So many good quotes! “You cry, dear? Waste. Should've married you years ago.” .......“Promise me . . . you will write. Heroine—” 3w

Crinoline_Laphroaig Pray do not stumble over your mother in the passage,” he added as I made for the door. “She has been listening at the keyhole this quarter- hour at least.”

"The moon is high; and when the lady in question is Miss Austen, it does not signify how long I wait.”

“Promise me . . . you will write. Heroine—”

6️⃣ Maria Fitzherbert. Plus I fell down a Google rabbit hole of the history of Itchen ferry.
Crinoline_Laphroaig 7️⃣ Rather obsessed w/ Jane's gown and want to Cosplay it - 'the cunning design of opened lapels, split bodice buttoned down the centre, and delicate bows tied beneath the right breast. The high white ruff à la reine Elizabeth, with Vandyke pleating, Equestrian Hat, and dove- grey paisley shawl, figured in black and gold. '
*Glad doubled up #janeandtheprisonerofwoolhouse and Ghosts of Netley since both are set in Southampton and have Naval storylines. After this we are off to @janeaustenshouse in Chawton.
TheBookHippie First I want the dress. And yes had she ever married we wouldn‘t have the gift of her writing how sad is that?!?! 3w
TheBookHippie I suspect that too much breeding is at the heart of the trouble--but too much breeding is the lot of all women who marry young, particularly when they are so fortunate as to make a love-match. Elizabeth Bridges, third daughter of a baronet, was but eighteen when she wed, and only five-and-thirty when she passed from this life. With her strength of character, she ought to have lived to be eighty. 3w
Crinoline_Laphroaig @TheBookHippie such a great dress! 3w
Crinoline_Laphroaig @TheBookHippie I'll take my chances financially as a spinster writer rather than dying after giving birth to my 11th child like Jane's sister in law. 3w
