No words!!! Too excited. This chapter leaves me full of hope for both. I love how both of our dear characters’ sisters keep it simple and go straight to the point when talking to them. ❤ I am all anticipation! 🍾
LOL, Mel! Well, I’m glad you are all anticipation!
What a hopeful chapter! I loved Darcy and Georgiana’s conversation. Georgie is such a dear!!! And Elizabeth coming to terms with her feelings is great! I hope she makes it clear to Darcy, soon, that she didn’t mean what he thought she meant there. I can’t wait for more! Thanks, Cass!!! 🙂
She will be saying something in the very next chapter about that mix up, Daniela!
Well, well, well… So Lizzy has finally admitted that the likes the gentleman and Jane has clearly told her that it is more than liking. Food for thought for Elizabeth!
Dear Georgiana has also told Darcy in unequivocal terms that the “lady is not indifferent”, that she likes him. Very discerning siblings Darcy and Lizzy have, if you ask me.
I miss ODC interacting a bit more. I would love them to have some interaction in every chapter. Just a thought;)
Thank you for another great chapter.
LOL re ODC interacting, Cristina!
I did have an end scene to this chapter which is now the opening scene of Thursday’s chapter with plenty of interaction! 😉
Great! Can’t wait!
I’m looking forward to everyone (including the Latimers) being under the same roof. It will surely be an interesting dynamic. I do have one question however: Is it Thursday yet? (Just imagine a young child repeatedly asking “Are we there yet?” and you will have an accurate image of me at this moment.)
LOL re ‘are we there yet?’ Jan! At least it’s not as long as the wait between Thursday and Tuesday! 😉
Yes, I, too, was looking for some interaction between the two. Love that Jane and Georgiana are telling it like it is. And I know that they both will be alert observers of the interaction between the two. What I am anxious to read most of all is how diplomatic Darcy will be in relating to the Latimers that his interest has cooled.
DID NO ONE wonder what has happened to Lizzy’s necklace and her dance card? Wickham can’t have snuck in and then stole the necklace and what would he want with her dance card? I am very curious as it sent to hairs on the back of my neck into beware mode. Tell me it was just misplaced! I am thinking you dropped a clue and we don’t know what it indicates.
Aunt Gardiner – to buy them all new gowns…how very sweet and generous. I can’t imagine losing both mother and sister at the same time and to even think about trying to distract her nieces is so very insightful.
And when are we to learn just what Mr. Bennet has going on in the north? I keep trying to remember if there are family members in that area. Or did Mr. Bennet invest in Thornton’s mills? (Just a thought.)
Thanks for this chapter. Looking forward to the next.
Yes, I know, Sheila. This turned into a transitional chapter in the end (as I mentioned to Cristina, originally there was another scene at the end with D and E talking, but that is now part of the next chapter).
It was Jane who couldn’t find the locket. Lizzy was only looking for her dance card. 😉
I’m agreeing with Sheila on all the points! No problem on a missing locket – Georgiana would loan her something from the Pemberley jewels. No tiara please! 😉
Definitely no tiara, Dave! LOL
Well, I’m with Jane, she has definitely fallen in love. I can see everyone will be stepping on eggshells at Pemberley for a bit. I can’t wait to read how it plays out. Meanwhile, I hope the “thief” hasn’t been in the house and taken the locket. Great fun. See you next time. Jen
Thank you, Jen! ❤
Yes, did Alice find Jane’s locket and Elizabeth’s dance card? Very strange, those two particular items going missing. Are you teasing us with red herrings, Cass, or is there more significance to this?
Can’t wait for the next chapter, to see how D & E manage this latest misunderstanding. Will the fact that they’re coming to terms with their own feelings make things better or worse, I wonder? It already has done with Lizzy very recently. Or of course, they could just behave as “common and indifferent acquaintances”. Yeah, right!
P.S. I like Sheila’s idea of Thornton’s mills, even though this story pre-dates N&S by several decades.
Moi? Un herring rouge? LOL I can’t imagine why you’d say that, Anji! 😉
Ah the Thornton connection. I had a back story about that for AFP that never came out (I’m being lazy using the same name for Darcy’s valet!) This Thornton was John Thornton’s grandfather. It was his son who set up Marlborough Mills. Darcy’s Thornton didn’t understand or approve. His family has always been in service; he didn’t understand his son’s desire to go into ‘business’.
Yes, I too was wondering about the locket and dance card! I do wonder if ‘someone’ is blackmailing Mr. Bennet and using these items as proof? I am glad that both Darcy and Elizabeth each have a sensible sister to sort them out! I just wonder, when Jane is going to give Wentworth his answer and what Darcy is going to say to Mr. Latimer! Thursday cannot come fast enough!
Ah yes, Jane and Mr Wentworth. As for Mr Latimer, I’m dreading his arrival almost as much as Lizzy! LOL
An excellent installment. The “love” word has been spoken. It will be great fun to watch Mr. Darcy trying to appeal to Elizabeth while not insulting Miss Lattimer. I am also wondering if her father will accept Darcy’s words or if he will try to force his hand in the matter of the marriage. I look forward to the next chapter!
Yes, Lizzybel, I think Mr Latimer may not be as easy to handle as Darcy hopes!
Oh, I didn’t like that, Cass. I am sorry Darcy has to put up with these Latimers!
Great Chapter! I think Georgiana and Jane need to get together and help out their siblings!
Really wondering what will happen upon the Latimers’ arrival.
Looking forward to Thursday! So glad it’s only two days away!
I’m liking the way the sisters are taking the lead here too, Maureen!
Ah, to be willfully misunderstood. 😉
LOL! My favourite thing, Trez! 😉
Ah, Jane speaks the truth at last! I hope that Lizzy will listen to her more than Darcy listens to his very perceptive sister!
But of course, not all will go smoothly with the Latimers, I’m sure. 😉
Elizabeth has every reason to be concerned about being at Pemberley and (supposedly) seeing Darcy pursue another lady.
Thank you for another lovely chapter, Cass!!
Tee hee! Yes, Darcy is less inclined to believe his sister than Lizzy is hers. I suspect that’s because of the age difference and the fact he’s not used to having her as a confidante!
Ah, those pesky Latimers…. coming soon! 😉
Oh, I hate the angsty parts. Perhaps Georgie might betray her brothers confidences? We can hope. Thanks
You can rely on Georgie, Fran! Darcy may tell her to do or not do something, but she’s learnt a mind of her own! 😉
And Jane has guessed at her sisters feelings which I think is very close to home eh Cass?
And the mysterious business which Mr Bennet left on? I’m worried for it, I still feel trepidation over whether it is Wickham or something else?
And what of all these missing items the girls can’t find? Is it related to the thief? Or maybe something else?
And now on to Pemberley…. can’t wait to see how this plays out!
Yes, very close to home, Sophia! 😀
Yes – is Wickham alive and causing havoc, or is it something… or someone… else?
Thief? Poacher? Ghost? Or the multi-faceted Mr Wickham again? Ooooh, so many questions! 😉
Thank you for continuing to read along and comment! ❤
