Recently I’ve discovered an American author Karen Joy Fowler. I bought her book in English called The Jane Austen Book Club which was published in 2004. I must say that I did it also because of its beautiful cover 💛 Later I got her other book We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves, this time in Czech. I’m planning to read both of them right after Christmas 🔜 🎄 Have you read them already?
“–Es usted demasiado generosa para burlarse de mí. Si sus sentimientos
son aún los mismos que en el pasado abril, dígamelo de una vez. Mi
cariño y mis deseos no han cambiado, pero con una sola palabra suya no
volveré a insistir más."
“ To the girls, who could not listen to their cousin, and who had nothing to do but to wish for an instrument, and examine their own indifferent imitations of china on the mantelpiece, the interval of waiting appeared very long.”
