My entire childhood

I’m so wowed by this. It feels like my entire childhood, coalesced into a single image.

In which my heroine goes to the Upper Rooms

A scene in You May Kiss the Bride that was very fun to write has my heroine, Livia, going to the Upper Assembly Rooms in Bath, where she meets a mysterious — but very affable — stranger. (More about that another time.) I wanted to get a strong sense of what the setting would be like and was glad to find a wealth of information about it. I particularly liked a post on the Jane Austen’s World blog, which included the photograph below. It really sparked my imagination; I loved imagining my characters here.
