A hundred ways

“I suppose there may be a hundred different ways of being in love.”

Emma, on thinking Mr. Elton far too gallant
Emma, volume 1, chapter 6

I’m taking the next week off to linger and gaze at the sea, glory in the ocean, and sit dangerously outdoors!  Happy Memorial Day to all my U.S. readers. Enjoy the wonderful long weekend!  The blog will be back on June 2.

  5. June 2 – perfect… my birthday! 🙂
    I’m almost finished reading A Walk with Jane Austen so it’s pretty neat that I stumbled across your blog today. One of my birthday gifts was the 1996 production of Jane Austen’s Emma (with Kate Beckinsale) and I was looking up stuff on Mark Strong. Your blog came up!
    As I’ve been reading your book, I keep telling myself that I have to write to you once I’m done. I can relate to so much of what you share. Though I have not had the privilege (or rather, have not made the effort) to go to England and do some real Jane Austen following, there’s a lot in your book that really resonates with me, including our Christian backgrounds, our experiences with men/relationships, and our careers (I’m a full-time freelance writer and editor working on my second book!)
    Anyway, I know I’m rambling here but I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your book. It’s been a nice way to get to know Austen a little better (without reading a dense history or biography book) but I’ve especially enjoyed the reflections on faith, family, friends, etc.
    I have never subscribed to a blog feed before (though I have two of my own blogs) but I’m going to subscribe to yours. Don’t you feel special? 😀
    So, thanks again, and I’ll probably be back!
    God bless you,
    Ann-Margret

  6. “ACK!” I forgot to say: Enjoy your holiday. I hope you’ll get some much-deserved rest. 🙂

  7. Thanks, Ann-Margret! Wonderful to ‘meet’ you!
