As mentioned in my 2014 Reading Goals post, I'm trying to add more adult fiction into my diet. And, as I like to chronicle this stuff, here I am, chronicling it.
Right now, I'm (obviously) reading Jo Baker's Longbourn, which is Pride and Prejudice from the servants' perspective.
Feel free to read along! (If you end up posting about it, let me know in the comments and I'll link up.)
James brings the Bennet women to the assembly in Meryton.
- Below him, the ladies' voices twittered; the carriage was a cage filed with pretty birds. How could he ever show sufficient care? How could he ever repay the trust that that good man had placed in him? Things could change so entirely, in a heartbeat; the world could be made entirely anew, because someone was kind. He would keep his head down, draw no attention to himself. He would not even look at Sarah, for all she was so very good to look at. WELL, THEN. VERY INTERESTING...
- Also, nice description of the goings-on outside of the dance, as well as the quiet return home.
