What about this time period do you enjoy so much that you want to write about it?


I guess you could say that a love for this time period is in my blood. I grew up in historic homes, the oldest predating the Revolutionary War. I scampered about the property in my handmade nightgown and mop cap, snuggled before fires in the stone fire place, and watched my father in his woodshop create period furniture. Not to mention a daily teatime and weekend jaunts to antique shops and museums. The result is a Jane Austen-loving, desperate romantic! 
But it wasn’t only those parts of my childhood that lent to this desire. It was also the history of the time. The Regency setting is simply elegant. Print muslins of the dresses, Greek Revival and Empire styles, Wedgwood tableware—no plastic anything! Quill and ink, leatherbound books, calling hours, dances, long walks… The sights and sounds—so much about the time intrigues me. 
 While modernity has changed, the human condition has not. What would it be like to grapple with difficulties in the Regency context? And how does that context inform beliefs and choices? And how would the same hope we have in our Savior be in what we consider more challenging times and lifestyles? And, how can such grappling come alongside readers—not just a contrast of a historic/fictitious story world vs. the real-present—to reveal a consistent testimony of God’s work in our lives?
