And the Winner is ....

Lauren, whose description of Jane's suitor received 28% of the votes. She and djlott (who received 24%) will receive a free copy of The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen by Syrie James. Lauren and djlott, please email me your addresses and I will forward your information to the publisher. (To read all the descriptions, click here.)

The perfect suitor for Jane will be kind and warm hearted, but not foolish in sentiment. He will not be too grand to economize-though he does not have to- and he will live soberly but wisely. He will be amused greatly by Jane's wit and wisdom, and her joy in living. He will dance well enough but better than that, he will be gracious in discourse and in giving. He will live a noble life that is founded on faith in God and expressed in love for his fellowman. The fact that he is tall, dark haired and handsome, will not be denied, but quietly celebrated.

I'm thrilled! Thank you. I may just have to start a dating service and employ this gift of writing detailed descriptions of appropriate suitors!

Nicely written indeed!

Apologies for the deleted post, I was still logged into my Review blog... I don't like to use it to comment on things.
