Dr. Cassandra Reilly and her time travel adventures began when I needed a distraction at the end of the day to help me to fall asleep. Soon enough that distraction became the obsession that occasionally keeps me up late into the night. Life is good.

Where it all began when Cassandra visits the time of Jane Austen.

Heiress

New York City 1853, the Underground Railroad and a world of trouble

Contessa

Renaissance Italy: artists, aristocrats, and reprobates abound.

Duchess

Who wrote the plays of William Shakespeare? That's what Cassie has gone to find out.

Perhaps the timeless love story of Pride and Prejudice is only a part of the picture, as other players unknowingly weave the plot.

Lizzy and Darcy find themselves in a battle of wills which threatens the happiness of the couple and their otherwise peaceful lives at Pemberley

Elizabeth, Darcy, & Me

 

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful! Surprising! "Written in a refreshing first person voice, we see and feel the love Bingley’s groom, Christopher, carries for Mary Bennet, entwined with the growing romance between Darcy and Elizabeth. This is a warm story, brimming over with love."

 

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth Reading "Of all the dozens of P&P variations I've read this one has just about the most interesting POV."

 

5.0 out of 5 stars Avid Reader "Class and station were so important in England. The ideas still remain entrenched in present day society. Education, then and now, allowed those humbly born to rise above their stations in life."

 

5.0 out of 5 stars A neglected Bennett sibling well-developed and interesting "Mary is a neglected Bennett sibling in Austen's original and certainly fruitfully developed here. I also like the character of the groom, equally well-developed and interesting."

 

5.0 out of 5 stars Mary Triumphant "An excellent book. The prose is crisp and authentic, free from modern slang. It shed light on the neglected Bennet sister, Mary. As a plain sister, who wore eyeglasses, lived to read and had three popular sisters, I felt a bond with Mary. It is good to see her emerge from the shadows and claim the reader's attention."

I don't use this blog as a political platform. I don't use Facebook for that reason either, though I do sometimes post about causes I support, such as solidarity with Standing Rock. However, since November 8th, 2016, I have become aware, not only of the hateful acts of racism and xenophobia that are being talked about on the news and social media, but of attacks against people near and dear to me. As a result, I decided I have to use this platform to talk about it. The first incident occurred just about a week after the election. An old friend of mine, a gentleman of about 70 years of age who used to be the priest at an Episcopal church I attended in NY, a gentleman originally from El Salvador who is small and dark-skinned, and who speaks with a heavy accent, but who has lived as a citizen of the US for about 30 years, has a PhD, and a better English vocabulary than I do, posted this on Facebook: "I was verbally assaulted by a white man who thought I was Mexican. He said, 'F****ing Mexican, trump is going to send you all back!' I said to him, "I am not Mexican, I am American,' and asked him, 'Are you American?' He stammered and went away." Then today I saw on Facebook that another friend of mine, a lady who is American of Mexican descent, had racial slurs hurled at her at a bar that she regularly frequents with friends. Both incidents made me feel physically ill, and had me in tears. I thought, if this can happen to American citizens, both born and naturalized, how vulnerable are all people of color, and "foreign" origins in our country today? I know that many of us have vowed to stand up for and protect anyone who is harassed in such a way, and that many US cities, including Portland, where I live, and NYC and Santa Fe, New Mexico, places where I lived for a long time, have declared themselves to be sanctuary cities, and this is good, no mistaking. But it's not enough. I am speaking from an unintentional space of white privilege, but I know that offering to protect others isn't enough. We need to put our bodies on the line to fight for the beautiful, diverse, accepting society that we wish our country to be. Get out there. Protest when you see injustice. Join an activist group. Speak out, and not just on social media. So many people in our country are going to be victimized in a way that they never would have been before because others now feel empowered to do so. We have to send a message, loud and clear, that we will not stand for it. Are you with me? p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Helvetica; color: #454545} p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Helvetica; color: #454545}
