Wordless Wednesday: The Bennet Family at Home, Hugh Thomson

Today is actually Wednesday. Yes, I did accidentally publish this on Monday, but then I unpublished it so that it could be published on the correct day. I apologize for the confusion. 🙂 Enjoy your Wednesday!

Leenie Brown fell in love with Jane Austen's works when she first read Sense and Sensibility followed immediately by Pride and Prejudice in her early teens. As the second of five daughters and an avid reader, she has always loved to see where her imagination takes her and to play with and write about the characters she meets along the way. In 2013, these two loves collided when she stumbled upon the world of Jane Austen Fan Fiction. A year later, in 2014, she began writing her own Austen-inspired stories and began publishing them in 2015. Leenie lives in Nova Scotia, Canada with her two teenage boys and her very own Mr. Brown (a wonderful mix of all the best of Darcy, Bingley and Edmund with healthy dose of the teasing Mr. Tillney and just a dash of the scolding Mr. Knightley).

  1. A Wordless Wednesday on a Monday? I’m terribly confused — one might even say I’m confounded. However, I really do like that drawing and I really love the snippet of text you have added to it! Now I’m trying to figure out which sister is which in the drawing. The one sitting apart to the far left reading a book could be Mary with her sermons but it could also be Elizabeth who, although not a great reader, does love to read. The one who looks like she is working on a bonnet could be Lydia but she might also be Kitty. The girl to the far right (with her elbow up) could also be Lydia because she looks bored to be sitting so quietly with her family. Or perhaps the bored one is really just looking serene, making her Jane. I think the girl leaning to the right and the girl standing are Elizabeth and Jane, but which one is which? Hmmmm.

    1. You think you’re confused? LOL I think I’m confused. I tell you today has been a very Mondayish Monday. 😉 I do like trying to figure out which might be which in this picture. I am probably going to unpublish this post and republish it on Wednesday. So if your comment disappears, I apologize. 🙂
