The JAHW is drawing to a close.  It’s been a great week.  A big thank you to everyone who participated especially Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm.

Note:  I will try to get the concluding post up tomorrow but it might have to wait until Monday.

Now for the giveaway!  (Can you tell I’m excited? :))

I have one lovely copy of the Pride and Prejudice 2005 soundtrack to give away.  I know that the ’05 adaption isn’t everyone’s favorite, but the music is truly wonderful.  You can check out my review of the soundtrack here.

Heroine of the day – Catherine Morland

Catherine Morland is the youngest of all Jane Austen’s heroines.  I think part of the reason for that is that Jane Austen was a very young woman when she wrote Northanger Abbey (or ‘Susan’ as she first called it).  Catherine is cheerful and deeply in love with Henry Tilney (who can blame her? :)).  Catherine, though not one of my favorite heroines, is a true heroine. 😉  

The reason I’m not having a poll between the two Catherines is because I think everyone likes Felicity Jones the best.  The older BBC version is atrocious.  I couldn’t even finish watching it that’s how bad it was.  NEVER watch it!  Henry Tilney looks HORRIBLE!

Instead, I’m putting up a Secondary Heroine Poll.  I couldn’t find any secondary heroines for Persuasion (poor Anne is pretty much on her own).
