An Unforgiving Temper
By Gail Head

Foy anyone familiar with and a fan of Jane Austen's works, particularly her novel, "Pride and Prejudice," Gail Head's, "An Unforgiving Temper," is a must-have and must-read.

Imagine: What if Elizabeth never went to Pemberley? What if the events in Ramsgate ended in an explosive conflict that set Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam's course on a different path that was filled with implacable resentment and filled others with a rapacious thirst for revenge? "An Unforgiving Temper," is the captivating story of what Darcy and Elizabeth's journey might have been.

This thread is an announcements of my wife, Gail's, new book, "An Unforgiving Temper." I am so proud of her. Many of you know her from her positing updates on my condition while I was in MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX last year with scaral chordoma cancer and the major surgeries I went through.

I am so proud of her and wanted to let our FR family know of her accomplishment.

My wife's new book. I am so proud of her. If there is a Freeper author Bump List, someone please add it. Thanks again to all of you. I continue making slow, steady progress.

Here's my latest video...me and my dog, Dillon, making a little over a half mile walk without a cane.:

Thank you! I am very proud of what she accomplished here. Got me interested in Jane Austen and pride and Prejudice at the same time.

My wish is for your continued recovery and best wishes for your wife’s success with her book. I will look for it when I book shop and tell my Austenophiles about it. I love Persuasion as well. There is so much of regret coming from Austen’s story in this one.

She originally created it on the Darbyshire Writer’s Guild. People could literally not put it down.

I believe if you like Jane Austen, particularly Pride and Prejudice, you will love this book.

Thank you so much for the video Jeff. Congratulations on doing that walk with no cane. Keep it up young man! Sure hope you are able to do it daily, and to even go beyond Washington Avenue and continue east on East Idaho Boulevard a little further each day.

Did you see our gal Sarah was in Jerusalem today, and will be with Netanyahu tomorrow? She was a real hit in India. What a winner she is. Be wonderful to get her in the White House and get rid of the jerk that is there now.

Keep it up Jeff - you look and sound great.

This is great, Jeff. The missus is a big Jane Austin fan, so I’ll head on over to Amazon and pick up a copy. Good to see you doing so well. The restoration of our republic needs men of your goodness and strength.

I will definitely read this, Jeff & Gail.

Interestingly, I’d never read Pride and Prejudice until recently. No particular reason, just hadn’t thought of it I guess. But I liked it very much and will be interested to revisit the Darcy’s in this one.

Keep up the good work. And the good recovery.

“Here’s my latest video...me and my dog, Dillon, making a little over a half mile walk without a cane.”

It’s good to see you up and about- I’ve always said, “Any day you can still stand up, and walk, and talk, you’re one jump ahead of the game.”

I’ve just started reading “Dragon’s Fury” on my netbook, and I’m enjoying the Hell out of it

Y’all go here:

Look up Jeff’s books- and Gail’s- and download ‘em. You’ll be glad you did.

And BTW? The only thing better than a Good Dog in this life is a Good Woman...

Thank you B-Cause...I hope to reach a mile in my walking over the next week or two. I’ll either cross Washington or turn south and head into town.

Yes, I hope Sarah runs for President and wins. I believe she would devestate Obama...and you know the left, the libs, and the RINOs all fear her because they continue to attack and try and discredit her. It will have the opposite impact on most good Americans IMHO.

Gail has been the epitomy of a help meet, best friend, and absolute supportive wife and compassionate service to me througout this. I cannot express my love and rfeelings for her in words.

She is also a heck of a good writer.

Thank you my good FRiend! For your support, prayers and encouragement and faith!

Gail’s book is a GREAT read for anyone interested or liking the Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice genre. If they like it, they will love this. Heck, I was not really into that genre and she has brought me into it with her own writing.

Wow! What an accomplishment for Gail! And, for you!

I’m astounded at the life you’ve both led for quite some time. You are both overachievers...you know that don’t you. ;o)

I love Jane Austen, and not just for Pride and Prejudice.

Kudos to Gail for putting herself “out there”. That took courage!

My best wishes to both of you for your continued successes...
