OK, she’s a friend, and would read anything I wrote, but that isn’t the point. She’s actively interested in Victoria & Albert. The A&E movie, but it’s something. And I’ll take it.
It started with Pride & Prejudice. She needed to read it for a college class, but couldn’t get through it. Not because she didn’t like it but because she always read late at night after work and all and would fall asleep. A&E’s wonderful movie came in (ok and me) and she got an A on the paper. Then she watched Wuthering Heights. The TNT one, not the Laurence Olivier and Merle Oberon one, though I personally love that one.
She adored it. Emma, Sense & Sensibility, Jane Eyre she’s on a roll! Then she says to me last week, do you know anything about Victoria and Albert?
Ha, I say, do I know anything about them…
It should arrive in a week or 2, but I’m sure she’ll love it. How can she not? And if she doesn’t, there’s always The Scarlet Pimpernel. And Horatio Hornblower, The Great Gatsby, or possibly Ivanhoe.
