Proxy Marriages in the Regency and the Release of “Losing Lizzy” + an Excerpt + a Giveaway

Proxy Marriages in the Regency and the Release of “Losing Lizzy” + an Excerpt + a Giveaway

I have had the concept for “Losing Lizzy” in my head (and occasionally in my dreams) for nearly three years; however, I continued to set the story aside because for it to work, our dear couple had to anticipate their vows.

Enscombe and the Churchills. What Frank had to endure. Excerpt.

Enscombe and the Churchills. What Frank had to endure. Excerpt.

Nobody has much time for Frank Churchill, and little wonder. He comes across in the novel and various film adaptations as selfish and unreliable. He uses people to serve his own ends, flirting with Emma, and patronising his father and step-mother. He is deceitful and duplicitous. Mr Knightley doesn’t like him and that counts for… more goodness …
