Jane Austen is the ultimate romance novelist. That is a fact, not an opinion... :-) Also, a fact... I get to see the house she did most of her writing in... can you tell I am excited??
I finally was able to watch the first installment of PBS's Masterpiece Theater series featuring her works made into movies. Persuasion aired on Sunday night, but we taped it, and last night while Sophie was refusing to sleep (at 2:30 in the morning) I decided to watch it with her!
It was fabulous, although I do think I prefer the earlier version. But I was happy enough to watch Rupert Penry-Jones play the role of Captain Wentworth. Wow, I haven't seen him before (have I?), but he is beautiful!
