Guest: Lady Rochester of Thornfield Hall

Lady Rochester of Thornfield Hall
Greetings! I am Lady Rochester, wife of Mr. Rochester of Thornfield Hall. We have journeyed to Town to acquire rare books for our growing library at Thornfield Hall. We have heard of the extensive collections held at Pemberley by the Darcys and do so hope to meet Mr. & Mrs. Darcy.

We look most forward to meeting each of you and hope for a chance to tour the libraries at Pemberley.

Upon arrival into the ballroom, Lady Rochester is approached by Mrs. Bennet.

And then...

After enduring an hour or two of Fordyce's Sermons, I am forced to dance the first dance with Mr. Collins (the dreaded cousin.)

Of the two, who would you rather chat with, Mrs Bennet or Mr Collins?

If neither, how do you extract yourself from them?

Bit o'sip sip gossip...

Did you know...

Darcy has invited the Bennets and the Bingleys to spend the Christmastide’s festive days at Pemberley. But as he and Elizabeth journey to their estate to join the gathered families, a blizzard blankets the English countryside. The Darcys find themselves stranded at a small inn while Pemberley is inundated with refugees seeking shelter from the storm.

Without her brother’s strong presence, Georgiana Darcy tries desperately to manage the chaos surrounding the arrival of six invited guests and eleven unscheduled visitors. But bitter feuds, old jealousies and intimate secrets quickly rise to the surface. Has Lady Catherine returned to Pemberley for forgiveness or revenge? Will the manipulative Caroline Bingley find a soul mate? Shall Kitty Bennet and Georgiana know happiness?

Written in Regency style and including Austen’s romantic entanglements and sardonic humor, Christmas at Pemberley places Jane Austen’s most beloved characters in an exciting yuletide story that speaks to the love, the family spirit and the generosity that remain as the heart of Christmas.
