This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle, This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea, Which serves it in the office of a wall Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of less happier lands,-- This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England. ~~William Shakespeare, Richard III

George Knightley, Esquire Book Two Release Announced!

I am so excited! Barbara Cornthwaite has announced that Book Two in her retelling of Jane Austen's Emma from the wonderful Mr. Knightley's point of view will be released AUGUST 25!!

If you have not read Ms. Cornthwaite's wonderful telling of Mr. Knightley's story then you are really missing out! The author has a wonderful command of the language and culture of Regency England and Mr. Knightley is brought to life in incredible detail. It is truly a wonderful read, probably the best Austen spin-off or sequel I have read to date.

I posted a review about Book One (Charity Envieth Not) several months ago. You can read it here.
