Hi everyone!  I’m so happy to announce a lucky winner today!

I’m so thankful to Nancy Lawrence for her lovely visit to Austenesque Reviews!  It was so great to meet her original character Captain Robert Bingley and to see his encounter with Mary Bennet in the library at Nethefield.  I cannot wait to spend more time with these characters and begin reading Mary and the Captain next week!

Also I’d like to say thank you to Nancy for sponsoring a very lovely giveaway of her Netherfield Library Prize Pack with her visit!  What a bevy of lovely treats including one signed copy of Mary and the Captain!

And a big thank you to everyone who stopped by and read and commented on Nancy’s post!  Your support and enthusiasm are greatly appreciated! Continue reading »
