Sunday with Mr. Thornton

Standard

Given my earlier naughtiness with Sir Guy, I will be a proper lady once more and bring you our romantic hero, Mr. Thornton.  A  man who had to deal with a lot of angst and heartache before that train station scene, thank goodness he got a happy ending with the woman he loved. We get so little of that with our TDHBEW’s ChaRActers.  Time for lunch and then an afternoon nap. Later I will catch up with comments and emails, ladies.

I'm an LA native--Lower Alabama, that is. My husband of more than 30 years and I live here on a portion of my family's former farm with two gorgeous calicos and a handsome GSD mix. My background is art education, and over the years I've been a teacher, department store photographer, sales associate and a journalist. My husband, his business partner and I have Pecan Ridge Productions, a video production company, for which I shoot & edit video and stills and manage marketing. I also still write part-time for the local paper. I love movies, music, art, photography and books, and my tastes in all of them are eclectic.

  1. I’m reading N&S at the moment, I’m at (?) the part where Mr. Thornton is having tea with the Hales! 🙂 He’s quite taken with the bracelet on Margaret’s arm! 😉 The description of Mr. Thornton’s eyes is spot on: “(his eyes) seemed intent enough to penetrate into the very heart and core of what he was looking at”- this is RA all right! He was the perfect choice for the role!

  2. Judit did you finish reading North & South? If so how did you like it. I LOVED the book and afterwards listened to the unabridged audio version. It was heavenly to listen to.

  3. That one picture with the title Master of The Mill is really kind of weird to me. It stood out as I was watching the miniseries too because as a woman of color (deep mahogany brown), I never related anyone being called master to someone that did not have anything to do with slavery in America. I had no idea it was a term widely used during the industrial revolution and that white people during that time called their employer master too. You see how easy it is to see something so differently from others just because of a cultural or racial difference? I used to cringe every time the term master is used in N&S, but I have watched it so many times now that it doesn’t affect me anymore.
