It is a rainy, misty, moisty, gloomy, dark day here in this corner of Wisconsin. Can you tell I am not enchanted with it? When you get one glorious sunny day every two weeks, you get a little sun deprived. Living so close to Lake Michigan has it's disatvantages. There are certain times of the year, we might as well be living in England! I know, I have the January blues.... Usually, we can count on January being clear and bright because of the cold weather, but not this year, one gloomy week after another.......All I really want to do is curl up and read a good book!
My current read is Georgette Heyer. If you love reading Jane Austen, you will love Georgette Heyer. She researched her books extensivly and it is like stepping back in time.
"Her novels have charmed and delighted millions of readers for decades, though she rarely reached out to the public to discuss her works or personal life. She was born in Wimbledon in August 1902. Heyer published 56 books over 53 years, until her death from lung cancer in 1974. Her work included Regency romances, mysteries and historical fiction. Known as the Queen of Regency romance, Heyer was legendary for her research, historical accuracy and her extraordinary plots and characterizations." from Barnes & Noble
"Sprig Muslin" - Finding so young and pretty a girl as Amanda wandering unattended, Sir Gareth Ludlow knows it is his duty as a man of honour to restore her to her family. But it is to prove no easy task for the Corinthian. His captive in spring muslin has more than her rapturous good looks and bandboxes to aid her - she is also possessed of a runaway imagination...
