On Monday Miss Darcy went to a meeting at the Daughters of Sweet’s Racing Club to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the publishing of Jane Austen‘s Pride and Prejudice. It was a thoroughly satisfying evening. There were readings of course and in one of the private rooms Miss Darcy’s favorite movie version starring Colin Firth was shown. Many sighes could be heard among the gathered ladies.
During the party Rafflecopter was used to chose a winner from the entries in Miss Darcy’s raffle that ended Jan. 26th. The winner of the $10.00 Amazon Gift Certificate was Theresa Hurley. The prize was sent to her directly from Amazon.
Miss Darcy’s favorite quote from Pride and Prejudice is: “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.” So many romances have been written based on that very line.
In The Marriage Wager Lord Deveraux Havenhurst has been given an ultimatum by his grandfather. Marry and produce an heir or let the title slip to his pompous cousin. It takes a drunken evening with his friends to produce a foolproof scheme. He will marry an actress, get an heir and divorce her. Then he’ll have the freedom to live as he likes. Jane Austen would laugh at such folly. She knew that love could throw a wrench in even the best laid plans.
