Review:Courtney Dark says:

Oh my goodness this was an incredible first chapter! I am planning on adding it to my favourites already, and I've only just read the first chapter!

I can't believe I haven't stumbled upon this story already, because I am a HUGE fan of stories set in this time period, and haven't seen very many of them in fanfiction before! And, so far, I think you've written this time period perfectly. You've got the precise language down packed and the imagery and characterizations are all spectacular!

So far I love Rose's character! She is exactly what I imagine Rose would be like, if she lived in this time period. And I also love the contrast between Rose and Lily! Again, Lily is exactly as I would have pictured her - eager to find a handsome husband and attend balls and be the perfect wife. So different from Rose, who simply wants to be free.

I don't know what else I can say about this chapter, other than it was amazing, and I'll definitely be back for more when I get the chance!


Author's Response: Thank you, Courtney! It's fantastic to hear how much you already like this story - hopefully you enjoy the rest just as much. :D

I love reading and writing stories about this period - there's a lot of history and culture to build from, and for some reason, the way they used language fascinates me. There's a lot of subtlety in their way of speaking, which is one reason why Austen is wonderful to read.

I'm very pleased to hear that you like how both girls are portrayed so far, too. I didn't want them to be complete opposites - rather it's as you've pointed out, that Rose just wants her independence whereas Lily loves the glitz and glamour. They also have different, but not always opposing, views of how women should behave in society, and I've been enjoying playing with the tensions this creates.

Thank you again!
