I do believe I fancy Darius Wainwright! I think in today's times he'd be a sexy nerd! At first glance he might not be the dashing historical hero readers are used to but he is steadfast and engaging and his almost stoic characteristics disguise his fiercely passionate nature. Justina Perry is a treasure, she is more than a breath of fresh air she is a blustery wind that whips everything into disarray but brings with it the scent of flowers and sunshine making you smile despite the disruption . The village setting of Hawcombe Prior is quaint and rustic and the inhabitants varied and entertaining, I'm still chuckling over the bacon pusher. Sir Mortimer might just be one of my favorite animal characters of all time. The Book Club Belles are adorable and I cannot wait to see what these refreshing young ladies read next and what gentlemen bring their stories to life.
