Thursday Threads - Who would you be?

Of all the wonderful historical fiction characters and settings there are, which historical setting would you like to be in and even which individual?

I would love to be a character in the setting for Pride and Prejudice. Perhaps a fly on the wall in the library or living room with the enduring Mr Bennett. I wondered what he really thought of his beloved?

Over to you!


  1. I would love to be in France, as Athos' foster daughter (would he ever have a daughter). I love the days when most people consider plays, falconry, horse-riding and Latin as something required or even something to boast about.

  2. I'll opt for John of Gaunt's mistress, Katherine, the one he eventually married !

  3. Elizabeth Bennett in Pride and Prejudice without a doubt.

  4. I wouldn't mind being a fly on the wall at the Restoration court of Charles II!

    Great idea Marg...can I be a servant to Nell Gwynn? Otherwise, I loved Melanie Benjamin's "The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb," so I want to hang out at Barnum's American Museum!
