Sounds splendid.

Did you listen to the excerpt?

Tried to, but I couldn't get it to work.

It's not letting me listen, but I think I want it anyway . . .!

I don't remember where you brought up the "My Fair Lady" book by Monica Dickens, but I just got it from the library and read it again. I first read it probably about twenty years ago (I can't believe it was that long!) and just barely remembered certain bits of it, so it was nice to read it again. She certainly got some of her ancestor's flair for description, though if he had written it, it would be six times longer and we would be intimately aware of the butler's uncle's family situation and the unsavory character of the homelife of the policeman who arrested Eliza's father and the weather in the part of Northumberland she didn't come from... Great book. A bit hasty, perhaps, but fun.

That was on the Facebook page. Glad you got a chance to read it!
