Chapter Three from ROSINGS PARK by Jack Caldwell — 13 Comments

  1. I loved this excerpt, and am now waiting impatiently for the book. Marriage clearly has only made these characters more fun and even more lovable and human. I can’t wait for it to be published. The understated humor and the witty dialogue is a delight. Hopefully these will soon be available for preorder and I will pounce on them. Thank you for this delightful peek at the book. Will either this or Persuaded To Sail be done before football season starts? If they are out when the season starts, I may be reading in front of the big screen TV. Not that I will mind that.

  2. Dearest Jack! As one who most “ardently” loves Three Colonels (I have referred several JAFF authors to your creative scholarship) and Pimpernel, I am really looking forward to Rosings. The two chapters thus far seem to promise more excitement. Please let me know when you’re taking advanced orders. In the meantime, I assume you’ll pick up on the five typos … or I would be honored to proofread for you. Please don’t hesitate to ask! Just call me “Four Eyes”.

  3. A delightful excerpt, Mr. Caldwell!! I very much enjoyed The Last Adventure of the Scarlet Pimpernel and your various posts here at Austen Variations. I will have to invest in The Three Colonels so that I may enjoy Rosings Park all the more. 😉

    Thank you for sharing your writing here! As Sir William would say, “Capital! Capital!”

    Susanne 🙂

  4. Loved this chapter. Elizabeth should be happy that Darcy is jealous. Sure beats not caring. Can’t wait for more.

    • I’ve always had this image in my mind of Darcy prowling the ballroom, glaring at the young bucks and old farts who DARE to dance with Mrs. Darcy! Of course, Elizabeth suffers her adored husband’s jealousy with a smile.

  5. I do like to read about a jealous Darcy. But also glad to read of Georgiana getting her first dinner party over with successfully. Looking forward to reading this book. Good luck with your writing.

    Mary Tucker and Lady Caroline Buford? What’s this? Are we talking about Caroline Bingley, perchance? What a match-up in friendships…interesting, indeed.
