Enjoy, and please check back tomorrow for the next letter!
I have been looking all over the internet for a time transport portal machine like the one I saw used in the movie, Lost in Austen. I am desperate to have an adventure like that of my own. My bathroom is similar to the one in the movie with a nice large wall in the tub area to use as my portal. I also have Wi-Fi, although the connection is not always too good. If you can be of any help in this area, please reply to me as soon as possible. If anyone can help me, you can!
The truth is, I have been in love with Mr. Darcy for years now and my biological clock is ticking. I deserve a chance to win the heart of this amazing man. I would be much better able to fit into the early 19th century than the character, Amanda Price, in the movie. She was, honestly, a mess! I would at least dress the part before stepping through the portal. I have also been told that I have “bright eyes,” so am hopeful of making a love connection with my Mr. Darcy once there. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
Dear Miss Weston,
I am sorry to have to be the bearer of bad news, but the machine you speak of is actually not in existence. It is a fictional device, and was invented by the writer of the movie to create an entertaining chain of events. It did not really happen, and it will very likely never happen. I recommend the following novels for your perusal. They can all be purchased at Amazon.com.
- Me without You by Ralph Lazar and Lisa Swerling
- Women Who Love Too Much by Robin Norwood
- Get Out of Your Own Way: Overcoming Self-Defeating Behavior by Mark Goulston and Philip Goldberg
- Lost in Austen by Emma Campbell Webster. I highly recommend this interactive novel. Perhaps this will help you to come the closest to making your dreams come true.
