Jane Austen moment in Persuasion


Chapter 11

Captain Benwick had some time ago been first lieutenant of the Laconia; and the account which
Captain Wentworth had given of him, on his return from Lyme before, his warm praise of him as
an excellent young man and an officer, whom he had always valued highly, which must have stamped him well in the esteem of every listener, had been followed by a little history of his private life,
which rendered him perfectly interesting in the eyes of all the ladies. He had been engaged to Captain
Harville's sister, and was now mourning her loss.  They had been a year or two waiting for fortune
and promotion.  Fortune came, his prize-money as lieutenant being great; promotion, too, came at last;but Fanny Harville did not live to know it. She had died the preceding summer while he was at sea. Captain Wentworth believed it impossible for man to be more attached to woman believed it impossible for man to be more attached to woman than poor Benwick had been to Fanny Harville, or to be more deeply.

  5. What a glorious way to welcome Fall, Kit. Your orchard looks magnificent and that Apple Walnut Torte of yours scrumptious!

    I always found it so difficult to get back into the September school schedules. By the time I finally had them down to a science, it would be school vacation time and we'd have to start all over again, lol...

    Good Luck! And thanks for sharing...

  10. Hi Kit! Your apple torte is the prettiest one! Love the arrangement of apples and these are indeed yummy eaten with ice cream!
    I am so so so jealous of your apple trees! So geram!!! I'll join What's Baking, an extra monkey makes no difference, just pretend to look the other way when you see a couple of monkeys on your trees!!! Hahaha! And walnut trees too! Oh, I want to move to France!! Hey, take a couple of pictures of the walnut trees and fruits and post it, if you can! The monkeys over here would love to drool, as you know, we don't have walnut trees here ... really we would!! Hahahaha!
    Have a great weekend, Kit!
    BTW, do you have apricot trees??? :)
