My Favorite Heroine

If you could spend the next year as someone radically different from the current “you” — a member of a different species, someone from a different gender or generation, etc. — who would you choose to be?


Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and Prejudice would be my first pick. Smart, witty, sensible, spirited, loving her witless mother and sisters in spite of how vastly empty their heads are; admiring her passive father, and close to her lovely older sister–who wouldn’t want to be Elizabeth?  And she gets The Most Handsome Eligible Bachelor and goes to live in a fabulous castle on a fabulous estate.

I admire her for the way she deals with adversity when it comes.  I especially admire the way she stood up to snooty  Lady Catherine, who was under the impression that she ruled the world. I love the way she was able to keep her own counsel and not spout off with something she’d be embarrassed over later.  She was the perfect heroine, and is still a favorite–especially since the movie came out starring Colin Firth and  Jennifer Ehle.

      1. I had to go look her up! I don’t think I’ve read anything of hers. It’s a new name to me. I’ll have to check out her stuff–looks like something I’d enjoy.


  1. She’s an American romance author. I’ve only read two of her books, it’s a two-book set: The Lost Duke of Wyndham & Mr. Cavendish, I Presume. I read the Indonesian version books, since it’s very difficult to find the english version here.
