Book Beginnings: Dear. Mr. Knightley

I’m joining Rose City Reader as she encourages fellow bloggers to share the beginnings of a book we are reading.

I’m almost done reading Dear Mr. Knightley by Katherine Reay.


Dear Sir,

     It has been a year since I turned down your generous offer. Father John warned me at the time that I was making a terrible mistake, but I would’t listen. He felt that by dismissing that opportunity I was injuring not only myself, but all the foster children helped your foundation.

This is one of those Austen knock-offs, but in a good way. It’s set in modern times. I’ve enjoyed the look at the foster care system.

  1. I don’t usually read the knock-offs, but a contemporary version, with a look at the foster care system, reeled me in. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.
