…because you are yearning for witty dialogue, and characters with an armor of reserve under which passionate hearts abide?
Did you know about Jude Morgan ?
I just finished An Accomplished Woman which read to me kind of like what Sense and Sensibililty and Persuasion would be if mashed together and mixed with a soupcon of modern sensibililty.
Of course it’s about marriage, and what it meant for women of that time to accept men as their husbands.
Highly recommended for anyone. I can’t wait to read Morgan’s other books: Berlioz and his lover, and the lovers of Frankenstein’s author.
