Steventon no longer exists,
but the field above is where it was located.
Jane's father was the rector in Steventon
until he retired so Jane spent 25 years of her life
in this area.
My 2nd favorite of Austen's books is
Pride and Prejudice
I admire the character of
Elizabeth Bennet for her strength of
mind and ability to be unswayed by
society's norms that would cause her
to marry for any other
reason than for love.
"An unhappy alternative is before you, Elizabeth.
From this day you must be a stranger
to one of your parents.-
Your mother will never see you again if
you do not marry Mr. Collins,
and I will never see you again if you do."
My life is one that involves a lot of creative trial and error with some happy successes. I love nature and God the Creator. My days are spent at home and I love the sweetness of a day lived well. This Blog is a by product of all of those elements and I really enjoy sharing my life with others in this way. Enjoy and be blessed!
