Colonel Brandon's Diary is out today!

Colonel Brandon's Diary is out today! I'm really looking forward to finding out what readers thing about it. I absolutely loved writing it. Colonel Brandon has such a roller coaster of a life, with his first love affair ending in tragedy and then, miraculously, he finds another love.

Like Persuasion, it has a theme of 'seconds' but whereas Persuasion has a theme of second chances, Sense and Sensibility has a theme of second attachments. I really came to admire Colonel Brandon when writing the book because he had the courage to love again.

I wonder if that is why Jane Austen made both Wentworth and Brandon military men - they both have the courage to try again.

I cannot wait to read this one! I am in the middle of Mr. Knightly's diary, and, of course, LOVED Mr. Darcy's Diary. I was a late bloomer to Jane Austin's works, and have fallen in love with them all. My favorites are Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice. Amanda Grange has beautifully captured Austin's style and tone. The diaries are great fun! Any possiblity of a Mr. Ferrars' Diary?
