Members of the ton (i.e. JASNA-NJ) are all abuzz with the latest news! Via Zoom, JASNA-NJ will discuss Julia Quinn’s The Viscount Who Loved Me on Saturday, July 16th at 2:00 PM EST as well as the Netflix Shondaland adaptation.
Contrary to popular belief, Kate is quite sure that reformed rakes do not make the best husbands—and Anthony Bridgerton is the most wicked rogue of them all. Kate is determined to protect her sister—but she fears her own heart is vulnerable. And when Anthony’s lips touch hers, she’s suddenly afraid she might not be able to resist the reprehensible rake herself… (The Viscount Who Loved Me, Julia Quinn).
How will the book compare with the novels of our dear friend Miss Austen? Will the adaptation be a diamond of the first water and outshine the book? Regardless, it should be a delightful discussion, with mercifully few corgis and croquet games to distract us all.
