George Knightley, Esquire. Tome 2 : Lend me leave de Barbara Cornthwaite

Image
Présentation de l'éditeur : A rival for the hand of Emma Woodhouse has brought about George Knightley’s realization of the true nature of his attachment to her. He is determined to win her in spite of Frank Churchill’s charming ways, and he has only to figure out how to make her realize that they were meant for each other. As he joins the ranks of the heart-sore men of Donwell, hope grows ever more faint, but good news sometimes comes at the most unexpected moments.

Carefully researched and skillfully written, George Knightley, Esquire tells the other side of Emma's story.
