Books and Music
I have been (indulgence) re reading some of my old favourites recently “Pride and Prejudice” and “Mansfield Park”, by Jane Austen. Hardly worth doing a review of such well known books, except, love her as a character _as I do_ (is it sacrilege to say?) I do feel Fanny Price can be maybe a bit too compliant sometimes?
I blame Mrs Norris (hiss). Her sister Susan seems to be more confident.
Oh and did you know Pride and Prejudice had a working title of “First Impressions”? Leading seamlessly ^_^ to… I hear there is a good well researched new sequel has been written in Jane’s style. “Second Impressions” by Sandy Lerner.
I am waiting for it to come out in e-pub or at least paperback. It follows Elizabeth and Darcy on a “grand tour”.
One book I will mention is “Heaven on Earth” by Constance O’Day Flannery. A Time Travel Romance (yes it is a sub genre ^_^)
Accountant Casey O'Reilly unsatisfied with her, no relationship, life back east, is driving west, to visit with her sister in Santa Fe for a holiday when her plans and life are thrown off course by a lightning storm in the New Mexican desert, that literally blasts her into the past, fortunately a rescuer happens to be in the car behind and follows her…
My Personal top ten. I guess there is no point in my trying to find links as they so often seem not to work right internationally. Maybe JMB will be able to.

Titanium (featuring Sia) by David Guetta
