Today I have a little game for you, just for fun! I have modernized a few of the secondary characters from Pride & Prejudice, Persuasion, and Emma below. See if you can guess who they are from the descriptions! The letters have nothing to do with their names so don’t let that throw you. Put your answers in the comments below and good luck!
A is a wealthy young lady on the south side of 25 whose interests include fashion, gossip and putting people in their place. She could get her own place but chooses to live with her brother, hoping to catch the eye of her brother’s hunky best friend.
B is a 33 year old divorcee (although she’ll only admit to 29). She has her eye on her friend’s wealthy father, thinking that having a sugar daddy might be pretty nice.
C is a wealthy woman who married down because he was just so handsome and doesn’t seem that she intends to wear the pants in the family. She’s fond of music and giving people nicknames they don’t necessarily want.
D is a big-hearted older man who retired early after a store he had was bought out by a larger company. He has kids ranging in age from their teens to their late twenties. He’s the one who always organises the block party and likes to make sure everyone feels welcome and is having a good time. He’s not the smartest guy in town but he is the one who tends to know the gossip.
E is the youngest of three sisters. She stole her older sisters boyfriend and then married him in a triumph of wedding showers and house plans. It was all great fun for a while, setting up house, having her two sons but now she’s bored. Even worse, she realizes she could have married someone better than her husband. She is plagued by all sorts of vague illnesses but is fortunate that her sister is always willing to come help out with the kids so she can relax.
