Telynor's Library, and then some

A woman of a certain age who has three cats underfoot, and has the dream of filling her passport with stamps. Books, classical music, tea, cats, movies, art, fancy needlework,  and anything else I can think of.

The Dashwood Sisters Tell All: A Modern Day Novel of Jane Austen - Beth Pattillo Once again I am proved that novels based around Jane Austen that are set in modern times well and truly suck. The plot is a transparent rework of Sense & Sensibility built around two sisters in England trying to come to grips with their mother's death, with all of the attendant guilt. Blah, blah, blah. No sex, no passion, no sizzle, no nuthin'. Ok, I can forgive the no sex, but no passion? No fire? That's unforgivable. Two stars and not recommended.
