  2. Love the humour. Your Lydia is a wonderful character, Jean, a totally two-faced little madam! I wonder what Jane Austen would make of her? Do you think she’d be rather shocked or just nod her head?

  3. I love the excerpt. You’re a very funny writer, Jean. I’d LOVE to win a copy of the book, and my favourite piece was right at the beginning because it drew such a vivid picture with so few words:

    “I lowered my eyes so that she would not see the gleam in them at the prospect of a little scandal – anything that would lighten the atmosphere here at Pemberley. Spirits were higher on the battlefield at Waterloo.”

    Brilliant!
