Another Plug from Julian Fellowes

Worth wedding gown from 1896 (too late for Cora, actually), in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum

I’m interrupting my Patrick O’Brian reverie to share news from London. (Actually posted to the To Marry an English Lord FB page by the daughter of my co-author Gail MacColl. Thank you, Isabel!) Evidently Julian Fellowes is now contemplating a prequel to “Downton Abbey”! As he reiterates in today’s Daily Mail, TMAEL inspired the premise for “Downton.” And now, apparently, rather than continuing to trudge forward into the 20th century, Fellowes is considering flashing back to Cora and Robert Grantham’s original courtship! No word on casting, timing, etc. But we can be sure of this: if it comes to pass, the costumes will be magnificent. (Golly, just imagine Cora’s wedding dress: could it look like this, do you think?)

I spend most of my time writing and reading. Most recent publications: the reissue of "To Marry an English Lord,"one of the inspirations for "Downton Abbey," and the historical novel "Leaving Van Gogh." I am too cranky to belong to a book group but I love the book-blogging community.
