    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! 🍾


  2. 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!!! πŸ™‚


  3. Cristina says:

    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.


  4. Jan Steele says:

    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.)


  5. Sheila L. Majczan says:

    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. πŸ˜‰


  6. Jennifer Redlarczyk says:

    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


  7. Anji says:

    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.


    • Cass says:

      Moi? Un herring rouge? LOL I can’t imagine why you’d say that, Anji! πŸ˜‰

      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’.


  8. Carole in Canada says:

    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!


  9. Lizzybel says:

    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!


  10. Maureen C says:

    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!


  11. Trez says:

    Ah, to be willfully misunderstood. πŸ˜‰


  12. 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. πŸ˜‰

    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!!

    • Cass says:

      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! πŸ˜‰


  13. Fran says:

    Oh, I hate the angsty parts. Perhaps Georgie might betray her brothers confidences? We can hope. Thanks


  14. 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!


    • Cass says:

      Yes, very close to home, Sophia! πŸ˜€

      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! πŸ˜‰

      Thank you for continuing to read along and comment! ❀
