Today's the end of my official Blog Tour, which ends with a bang (not a whimper) since Fresh Picks have chosen The Other Mr Darcy as an official Pick for today! I'm very flattered because this isn't a paid ad. The Fresh Picks are chosen by a number of readers who vote for the novel.
The Blog Tour has been a great experience, and I'm sure I'll be having withdrawal symptoms. I was having such a good time reading the reactions to my interviews, meeting people, and answering questions. Sigh. Now I suppose I'll have to settle down and actually write!
I still have the Pride and Prejudice contest going strong here, however, which is wonderful. As usual, I loved your answers, which this time seem to be pretty unanimous. The verdict then, is that Elizabeth is every bit as proud at the beginning as she was at the end, but she has come to recognize Mr Darcy's emotional generosity and his willingness to give without return, which is much more "humbling" than her awareness of their limited circumstances. I like that. To me it puts a finger on the essence of the romance that Jane Austen portrays so beautifully.
The question today is completely different, and gives you a break from all the hard thinking you've been putting into your answers. Have fun with this!
Pride and Prejudice Question 18
