If it is merely a rough guide to the Regency and Victorian periods so that other people can write novels, then it probably doesn't qualify. At the risk of sounding harsh,I feel I must remind you that Pemberley costs $800 per month to run, and we cannot afford to expand into generic romance and historical writing. I keep the focus of this board extremely narrow for this reason.
] 3. If I were to make an exception to reason number two ,it would be for one person only, and that's for Patricia Bingham, who came onto this page to finish off her book on the same subject, and has stayed to hand on her knowledge to us all, free, gratis, and for nothing.:-)
I am rather new here at the ROP, and I'm afraid I may have gotten carried away with my enthusiasm at finding so many other people with the same interests as I have.
Please accept my apology for seeming to promote these books. We have purchased these for my children to use as reference books with school projects. With my extreme interest in the late 1700's and early 1800's England, (Jane Austen and her works in particular) I am always seeking reference books to answer all of those questions that are essential to really understand what I am reading. I had a college professor who taught us how imperative it was to have a full understanding of every word that was written, or the whole thing can be out of context.
I would love to know what Patricia Bingham's book is titled, and where it might be available. I checked at Bookserve and the Bibliography and could not find it. I have read many of her contributions to the boards here at Pemberley and can tell she is so very knowledgeable. I certainly meant no offense to her.
Thank you for your patience with us newbies. Kimberley
