Happy Friday, readers! Need help starting the weekend off right? How about an enticing excerpt from Ann Galvia’s newest release What’s Past is Prologue (such an Elizabeth Bennet kind of mantra, isn’t it?) Which sounds like an interesting Pride and Prejudice variation. I’m looking forward to reading it especially as Side by Side, Apart was one of my favorite reads of 2017!!! Ann is here today to share an enticing excerpt from her new story! We hope you enjoy!
To set the scene: Elizabeth has learned of a painting of Pemberley that hangs in the gallery at Rosings. She has asked Darcy to show it to her as a bonding activity.
“I must warn you, it is not any grand work. It is an amateur effort painted by my mother soon after her marriage.”
Elizabeth’s interest had already been secured, but this charming origin caused it to grow. “Even better! As a new bride myself, I hope I can understand your mother’s feelings about her home.”
Darcy led her to the gallery where the likenesses of Sir Lewis de Bourgh’s antecedents hung intermixed with landscapes and pieces the family had purchased.
