bakingfiction'You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late...'
Tea, cake, fruit, cheese, and Austen for breakfast. The sun is streaming in through the windows.
I'm not sure I've ever had a more pleasing collection of things in front of me on a Friday morning.
- eureblissGot to go back and read it again. That line is wonderful
- urchinetteOh that letter. I first read it when I was 21 and staying in my then boyfriend's parents' house and it made me cry so much I had to hide from my hosts until my face went back to normal.
- bakingfictionMine too @pennygoings - on both counts!
- bakingfictionIt's been a couple of years since I last read it and it genuinely is like welcoming an old friend bank into my house @eurebliss.
- bakingfictionIt is so full of love and desperation and I weep every time I read it @urchinette!
- email@example.com The best. X 😭❤💔
- pennygoings@bakingfiction "All the privilege I claim for my own sex (it is not a very enviable one: you need not covet it), is that of loving longest, when existence or when hope is gone"
- monicamaryquitecontraryMy absolute favourite Austen!
- urchinette@bakingfiction I feel a reread coming on! Surely the most satisfying and romantic ending ever.
- bakingfictionMine too @monicamaryquitecontrary!
- bakingfictionThat's exactly it @urchinette! So gloriously satisfying.
