A Modern Day Persuasion by Kaitlin Saunders

     Okay, I’m a huge Jane Austen fan and I read many Jane Austen variations and some sequels. Pride and Prejudice is my favorite! I love P&P what ifs and variations. Persuasion is my second favorite story of Jane’s. 
   A Modern Day Persuasion follows the original story Persuasion pretty much exactly.  Ms. Saunders did a wonderful job adapting it to the modern day. She worked out all the details so it would make sense in today’s world. I loved that in this version you know what Rick (Captain Wentworth) is thinking.  The letter Rick leaves for Anne toward the end is very romantic. 
This is a clean romance.

My First Post!!

ahhh....my first post! What to write, what to write?  The question is why did I start a blog?  Especially when I don’t have enough time in the day to get done all that I need or want to get done!  Well, I’m doing it to make myself write. Two, to have some place to post things more than what I would on facebook. To post about the books I read and what’s going on in my life. When I post on facebook everyone (my friends) can read it and really, who wants to read everything about me? At least on here I feel like no one else is going to read it! ;-) unless they really want to! 
It’s a beginning!  Now I’m not looking at a blank wall!!  Please be patient with me as I begin this adventure.  Hopefully my writing will get better the more I do this. That’s my plan. That’s the answer to my question!
