  1. So sorry to hear your health problems are ongoing and so impressed that you are managing to put them aside and continue writing.
    I hope Wickham doesn’t succeed in his quest and that Darcy is not injured trying to stop him. Lady Catherine also deserves to suffer for her cruel behaviour.
    I look forward to seeing what happens next. Desperately hoping it includes a spanking for Lydia by mr Bennet.

    • Mr. Bennet spank Lydia? I wish. No, I’m afraid he falls back on his normal behavior. Lady Catherine is a nasty piece of work. She has no clue Darcy has changed so much since meeting Lizzy. She is in for a surprise. (Evil snicker!)

  2. The last few lines put a smile to my face.

    I agree with Glynis. So glad you are back in the saddle. Prayers for the health of your family.

    Great news about Nicole’s book.

    • Thank you, Patricia. I thought it revealed a bit of the Matlock family dynamics by the Colonel’s naming his horse Earl. He will be perfect for quiet Mary, won’t he?

    Oh the angst! I love a masterful Darcy! I do hope Lydia is given a suitable punishment for her behavior. I say Lady Matlock could certainly come up with something!

    Goodness when it rains it pours…I hope things become brighter soon. Wishing you all well.
    I just finished reading Nicole’s ‘London Holiday’ and loved it!

    • I knew you would love London Holiday, Carole. Delightful! Thank you for the good wishes.

      As far as Lydia is concerned, I’m not sure who will drop the hammer. I’m bouncing between Lady Matlock or her husband. I can’t see her paying attention to anyone else. But that part of the story is still not quite settled in my brain. Maybe she will realize Wickham is rotten and she isn’t as smart as she thinks she is on her own? Nope! Never!

  4. When my son had his first CT angio, he told me later about the horse wearing a smoking jacket and sitting in a chair, that he saw in the room.

    • Oh my goodness, Ginna. Your poor son to go through this. But his imagination is intact, which is awesome. Best wishes to you.

      • Joy, it isn’t the worst thing he’s had done, but he’s doing well, and that’s all I care about.
        So the sedative for the CTA must have been really good, for him to have such great hallucinations!
        P.S. I’m Ginna, the non-writer. Gianna is the writer. And no, we’re not doing this to confuse you. 🙂

        • Good grief! I knew who you were and typed your name incorrectly, Ginna H. I’m thrilled your son is doing well. It’s HARD to have a child with health challenges. Thanks so much for stopping by.
