I am a retired CPA, living in Florida with my husband, although the thought of my hometown of Chicago makes me homesick. I have been in love with Mr. Darcy forever, beginning with the old movie starring Lawrence Olivier; I have loved each succeeding Darcy equally since then. However, the book was revelation. Imagine my surprise! It was better than the movies!
