SashaQ - happysad

Well, I might have cared as I've only just discovered e-books of out of print material, but <BB< did hint in the Entry that it wasn't a happy ending for that particular tale...

I'm hoping for some sort of happy resolution to Hopes and Fears, as it has been pretty sad so far, although I suppose it is happysad really as there is a lot of death, but also a lot of love. smiley - brave

paulh. Bunnies are cute (There, I've said it)

I'm sorry, Sasha. I didn't know it was that much of a spoiler. smiley - sadface

Sometimes you have a dreary classic with a happy ending, like "House of the Seven Gables." The least likable character takes it in the chin at the end, while some nice young characters find love and happiness smiley - magic.

No worries paulh - I should have explained better that The Heir of Redclyffe is not top of my list of Charlotte books to read because of the unhappy ending <BB< mentioned in the Entry, so I was not upset by the 'spoiler'. I should have put smiley - winkeye at the end of that paragraph!

Yes, Charlotte has a few readers still, and some Amazon reviews smiley - laughsmiley - biggrin

Florida Sailor All is well with the world

I am sorry, but I just found this thread. paulh, you said you wanted to read a bit of Joseph Conrad, I think this is one of his best, even though it is only a short story http://ebooks.adelaide.edu.au/c/conrad/joseph/c75y/

On another note from early in the thread, I rember when I took my wife to an Episcipal church service (US version of Church of England). She was shocked that we serve real wine as part of the communion service, in all the churches she had attended had only used grape juice.
