Let The Matchmaking Begin

It was two years ago this very month I wrote this brief post with the thrilling news that PBS was bringing Jane Austen to town.

(Jane Austen Home)

So you can imagine my joy last week, while checking out a grand stack of books at our library, when my Jane~Austen~lovin' daughter gasped and pointed to a small basket on the counter full of bookmarks announcing this:

"Library voice" hooting & hollering ensued, even the grumpy librarian gave us a little smile . . .

All our favorite characters, in our favorite fashions . . .

Who's playing Mr. Knightley?  Oh, I don't know if he'll do . . .

The best Mr. Knightley 

I'm a bit partial to this fellow...Jeremy Northam.

I"m not sure that Ms. Austen would approve of this "Twitter Party" . . .
but I admit this may be the final push I need to take the Twitter plunge . . .

Needless to say, I know exactly what will be airing in this household beginning Sunday, January 24th at 9:00 pm:

Persuasion

"More than seven years prior to the events in the novel, Anne Elliot falls in love with a handsome young naval officer named Frederick Wentworth, who is intelligent and ambitious, but poor. Sir Walter, Anne's father and lord of the family estate of Kellynch, and her older sister Elizabeth are dissatisfied with her choice, maintaining that he is not distinguished enough for their family. Her older friend and mentor, Lady Russell, acting in place of Anne's deceased mother, persuades her to break off the match.

Now, aged 27 and still unmarried, Anne re-encounters her former fiancé when his sister and brother-in-law, the Crofts, take out a lease on Kellynch. Wentworth, now a captain, is wealthy from wartime victories in the Royal Navy and from prize-money for capturing enemy ships. However, he has not forgiven Anne for her rejection of him. . . "
