First Line Friday - Old Friends and New Francies

Two weeks ago on Flashback Friday I re-shared a book recommendation for Old Friends and New Fancies by Sybil G. Brinton

I ended up ordering the book through my library's Interlibrary Loan Dept.  Can't wait to read it!

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/306841.Old_Friends_and_New_Fancies?from_search=trueThere is one characteristic which may be safely said to belong to nearly all happily-married couples-that of desiring to see equally happy marriages among their young friends; and in some cases, where their wishes are strong and circumstances seem favourable to the exertion of their own efforts, they may even embark upon the perilous but delightful course of helping those persons whose minds are as yet not made up, to form a decision respecting this important crisis in life, and this done, to assist in clearing the way in order that this decision may forth-with be acted upon.

  1. It would take a while for me to get used to the formal writing, but this sounds like a book I'd enjoy reading.
    My Friday post features The Other Daughter.

Hi Janeites! Thank you for visiting our website. We invite you to comment on our content. Of course, Lady Catherine would believe us all to behave like gentlemen and ladies, so please let us not disappoint her.

Also, please leave comments in English, as only Lady Catherine, had she ever studied a foreign language, would be a great profient enough to read such comments. (Merci! Arigato! Gracias!)
