a virtual book event
based on Persuasion by Jane Austen
June 8-10, 2011
Captain Wentworth is visiting his sister, Mrs. Croft, and Admiral Croft at their new abode, the estate of Kellynch.
As the weather turns warmer and the flowers are in bloom, he would like to invite Y O U to his first boating party.
Spend a lazy day on a sunny lakeside shore reading or napping.
OR pick some flowers with Anne Elliot.
OR take a ride in a boat with Captain Wentworth and listen to some of his naval stories.
I should mention, Capt Wentworth is still quite the bachelor, so feel free to turn on your feminine charms.
Please RSVP here in comments - let me know if you're coming.
