Friday 56

The Friday 56 is a weekly blog meme hosted by Freda’s Voice. Join in every Friday, the rules are simple.

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader.
*Find any sentence (or a few, just don’t spoil it) that grab you.
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post here in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url. It’s that simple.

Longbourn, by Jo Baker

“She shall have a new dress for the next one, I think, don’t you, Elizabeth?” Jane was moving toward the closet. “Shall we see-”

“Miss, that would be-” Such a delight that she couldn’t even finish her sentence. Maybe the footman would come from Netherfield to the next village dance; maybe he would ask her to dance with him. Mr. Smith might even be obliged to notice her then, dancing with a handsome man, in a new dress, on the village green.

~Jo Baker, Longbourn
