We have finally convinced Edward Gardiner's very shy assistant to speak a little bit about himself at Laughing With Lizzie. I wonder why he is so shy!
It’s a perfect day for this post, since I just got home from the fabric store myself. There were no surprise visitors awaiting me when I returned, however.
Good Morning everyone,
My first post this month is a guest post from Riana Everly who has recently release a Pride and Prejudice prequel called The Assistant, and whom I absolutely love to receive at From Pemberley to Milton.
Riana is an incredibly nice person with whom I love to chat, share experiences and talk about cultural differences, but her interesting remarks are not limited to our conversations, they extend to her guest posts and that is one of the reasons why I love having her in my blog. Apart from personalizing each guest post, and adapting it to the blog which is receiving her, she always does her best to bring to my readers interesting and different posts where you can learn something new. Today she explores the Milton connection with a brief survey of some types of textiles used for clothing in the 18th and 19th centuries and I really hope you…

Here's a little scene that didn't make it into the final version of the book! Enjoy it at My Love for Jane Austen.
Edward Gardiner studied at King's College in Nova Scotia. For some interesting tidbits about that fine institution - including a tale about the beginning of ice hockey - follow the link to today's post at Savvy Verse & Wit.
Part of the story in The Assistant takes place at a masked ball for Twelfth Night. There, our intrepid hero meets a young woman who intrigues him, but he never sees her face. What sorts of costumes might he have spotted at the ball? Read my guest post at More Agreeably Engaged to find out!
Who better to sketch the character of Edward Gardiner's new assistant than Miss Elizabeth Bennet. And if she is only nine years old at the time of the sketching, well, there's an innocent wisdom in youth, is there not? Come and see what Little Lizzy has to say at Babblings of a Bookworm.
Today my blog tour takes me to the lovely blog, So Little Time... So Much to Read. Join me as I let Edward Gardiner's oldest friend introduce him, and maybe let slip a little scandalous tidbit!
The next stop on my blog tour!
It’s a pleasure to welcome Riana Everly back to Diary of an Eccentric today to celebrate the release of her latest novel, a prequel to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, titled The Assistant, which focuses on Elizabeth Bennet’s uncle and aunt Gardiner. Riana has brought a guest today, the Elusive Miss Grant. Please give her a warm welcome!
Good day to you,
I do hope you will forgive me if I do not remove my bonnet and mask. Even the heaviest veil was insufficient to conceal my features, and I must remain hidden and unknown, for your safety as much as for my own. If he should discover where I am, or that you know me… Thank goodness the fashion is for bonnets with deep brims this year!
But I digress, and I must not alarm you. I am satisfied that my disguise is robust, and that…

With the upcoming marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, I can only imagine that London is going to be awash of Royal Wedding paraphernalia when we are there visiting next month. I remember the fuss when Charles and Diana got married, and there's a wonderful old Fred Astaire movie called Royal Wedding, leading up … Continue reading The Royal Wedding. No – the OTHER Royal Wedding.
