Or if the dashing Captain Wentworth came home from the high seas to settle down and did not encounter the cheerful and scatter-brained Louisa Musgrove, but someone else, who has cheerfulness aplenty, but also sparkling wit, intelligence and charm – someone like, say, Elizabeth Bennet?
I have often wondered – and I have always found that, after ‘Pride and Prejudice’, ‘Persuasion’ is Jane Austen’s second most romantic novel, and it was very tempting to bring the two together!
‘The Subsequent Proposal’ does exactly that. It brings together characters who are very much alike, at a time of upheaval in their lives, when they should have known better than making life-altering decisions on the heels of heartache and disappointment!
If you’d like to see what might have happened, visit at Amazon next week and take a peek! I’ll say no more for now – other than reassure you that I am a firm believer in the fact that, no matter what crazy obstacles are dreamed up and heartlessly set before them, Elizabeth and Darcy should never be apart!
'The Subsequent Proposal' is now available in ebook format at Amazon and Smashwords, with paperback soon to follow.
