Portrait of Anne-Marie-Louise by Jacques-Louis David
As we get better acquainted you will learn that I get most my ideas from a good night's sleep and a long hot bath. I cook when I’m stuck and I go on long walks to cure rejections from agents, but that I’ll tell you about some other time for now I’m motivated. Here is the idea or rather the words.
Here now on the verge of her new discovery she remembers those occasions on which her charges – those dear sweet girls that she had seen through their first season while their mamas entertained themselves – in those finial hours before their wedding, turned to their mothers while she is banished from the room and rightfully so. For here, their mothers are better able to instruct them on what to expect of their wedding nights. Now here on this afternoon, long before the hour of her wedding she, without counsel has decided to brave it with but heart and desire for this man she has so quickly devoted love.
She is Helena Alexander, a governess of sorts, that specializes in launching young women into society and he is Dominic Emanuel Montgomery the Earl Strange. I’ve decided that they will marry after she saves him from a compromising fall set in motion by her desperate cousins and I will call it Strange.
It is Sunday, glorious Sunday and I pray you enjoy it,
