Good morning and welcome one more time here, I hope you enjoy this article and later write down your opinion. I'm in mood "period-drama" and I'm watching my miniseries from BBC. I thought it will be a good idea let here my feelings. Do you want to join me? Let's hit it!

After the people persuade me to watch this series I took my opportunity one day, sat down myself on the sofa and started to watching it. After the first episode, I wanted to give it up because I'm very sensitive and is a hard work for me watch scenes with too much misery and children crying, but something pushed me up and I went on with the rest. 


When her father leaves the Church in a crisis of conscience, Margaret Hale is uprooted from her comfortable home in Hampshire to move with her family to the north of England. Initially repulsed by the ugliness of her new surroundings in the industrial town of Milton, Margaret becomes aware of the poverty and suffering of the local mill workers and develops a passionate sense of social justice. This is intensified by her tempestuous relationship with the mill-owner and self-made man, John Thornton, as their fierce opposition over his treatment of his employees masks a deeper attraction.

Margaret Hale is a sweet and nice woman belongs to Helstone, south of England, but when her father has problems with his believings, make his mind up and take his family at Milton, north of England and in there they settle down. Helstone is a peaceful place with flowers, clear sky, and friendly people. Milton is dirty, its sky is always gray, its ways are gray, the people are gray and their lungs are gray too because the rubbish they breathing.

In Milton is starting the industrial revolution and all people are excited, nervous, and exhausted and Margaret meets Nicolas Higgins, the head leader that wants for himself and for his fellas a better work and better conditions because the misery is so much big, the family are numerous and children crying for food, daughter dying with ill lungs and the people don't find support in the work. But Margaret meets Mr. Thorton too, but this man is rude with his workers, is grave, and always frowning. Their first meeting is wrong, they have prejudice each other, and they have misunderstandings. This is a huge problem because Mr. Thorton is a pupil from Mr. Hale and that means they are going to see each other often.
But under the shadow of his frown, dark, brow, there are hidden a beautiful smile. 

Milton will steal from Margaret to many things and give her tears and concerns, thus Margaret will become sterner with everything around her and always find support in Mr. Bell. Such a good man, he made me smile.

I read the book, as well and I have to say is better than this series. I loved it and is one of my favorites books.

Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen

 I'm very rested and in a good mood.
 Listening cries and yells on the street.
 The sky is clear and a little bit chill out there.
 I feel I can reach my challenges.
 Drinking my cup of tea EarlGrey

Inside in a world when the men rules make very difficult being a woman.
I don't know how much you know about that time, but this book reflects itself very well all those things. I won't go much further so... let's begin!


Women cannot get any heritage and when the man of the house died only another man can get the heritage. Elinor Dashwood, her sisters and her mother are obliged to leave their house because their heritage is now in her step-brother's hands. John is influenced by his greedy wife and take almost all the money and give at these four women a poor pay for to live. Elinor will learn to show her feelings and Marianne will learn to conceal them.

Jane Austen was a great writer, very bold, and born before her time. Miss Austen knew to see with a new look her world and adapted it into her books with touches of sarcasm and irony, and a little of complain, I have to say because she lived in her body most of these problems.
I love this book (There are not any book from Jane Austen I don't love) and its story love and the dead weight over those weak but at the same time strong, and stern shoulders.
Elinor Dashwood, within her restrictions, has such a confidence in herself that I feel jealousy from her. You can see her leading all her family because her mother only concerns her social status and appearances. Her sister Marianne has stuck in her romantic books and see al time the love in the air and her youngest sister is still a child. Elinor seems the only one with a head on her shoulders.

This is a topic which repeats itself in Pride and prejudice. The Bennet family had fear because they haven't any son and they were all women. By those circumstances, Miss Bennet wanted to see all her daughters married (and because she was always very bored, as well) And like Anne Eliot in Persuasion, Elinor is the person who all people are running into her for talking all their thoughts and feelings and at the same time, she must still quiet.

These four women lived in a big house with all kind of luxuries and her lives are changed when the father die. They leave her house and to abandon her lives and Elinor is the only one who is a bad person in that family because they are poor now and her mother doesn't want to see it, her sister Marianne is reckless in the love and her passion give them troubles, but Elinor is the only one who is capable of to see their real life. They are living now in a small cottage but they have relatives who invite them, only Elinor and Marianne, to London and that will give them more troubles.

Elinor will start to love in silent while she beholds about with precaution being all time the spokesman of her family, suffering in the hush and crying when no one sees her. And Marianne will lunge forward without hesitation towards the loving arms, danger-loving arms of someone with enough secrets.

Everything is about money! Yes, Mr. Money is always the owner into Austen's book. You have to get married to someone wealthy and it doesn't matter you don't love him/her. That is something that always happens here but fortunately, our heroines will have always very bad circumstances before getting good results at the end.

“Sometimes one is guided by what they say of themselves, and very frequently by what other people say of them, without giving oneself time to deliberate and judge."

Curse this house {Book}

 Listening: Love on the line {Hillsong}
Watching: 1ª season "The Flash"
Weather: It's cloudy and windy.
 I'm fine, relaxed
 Cup of tea Earl grey
 Today I got my new flashlight by USB
 Reading: Attack of the Jack-O'-Lanterns {Goosembumps}

Hi, everyone! I came up with one of my favorites books on my shelves. It's the first and the last book I read by Barbara Wood. Don't let me wrong, I loved it so much, but I went on with others books that I have.
Ok! Come on in!

If you are one of those people who doesn't save any memories from their childhood, ¿did you have the feeling that something is out your control?
You can come back at the same place and try to remember, but there’s a veil moving back and forth by a light breeze and at the end, that veil come back to hide your memories.
You can feel lost and search for the familiar faces any clue. You have lost something and people didn’t even know it, but they aren't supposed to have that thing you need, that thing for the wake up your dreams memories. That is Leyla Pemberton.

When her mother died, Leyla's only links with her heritage and family were a letter and a name—Pemberton. Resolved to seek out her past, Leyla travelled from London to the brooding mansion of Pemberton Hurst. Here she hoped to find a loving family and to unlock her mind, for she could remember nothing of her first five years of her life, spent under that very roof. Instead, she became the focus of dark secrets.

Ok, Leyla just wanted a huge hug, so he knocked the big door and in front of her, her Aunt Anna stared at her up and down while squeezed her hands faking her smile because Leyla was an unexpected visit.
Her presence was not welcome in Pemberton Hurst and that will raise painful blisters and old wounds will bleed. Everything into that big house is uncomfortable and tense, less the happiness and cheerful manners from her cousin Collin Pemberton who are annoying and irritating for the rest of his family. Collin has a tangled hair, lack of good manners, just saying himself and sometimes he is a little confused. 

Layla was a bundle of nerves, always behold everything around her even at her relatives with a little fear because the situation was out of control, and always waiting for the first mistake. Leyla wants to scrape the frost off her family and the most she wants is to find out why to exist that curse on her family.

Barbara wood made a great job with this book. The first part of this book has mystery and suspense. You have to hold the book strongly because you can feel the fear something escapes from the book. Barbara lets some crumb of mystery on the path and bit by bit you will see a bit dark memories from Leyla, a good one that she tries to hold on but it seems her mind has a high wall and it’s very difficult to even see it but she wasn't going to give up that easily.
The second part of the book the mystery faced bit by bit but we can enjoy with Collin and Leyla and, really, I don’t even know which part is better because the entire book is a great adventure and the romance and the puzzling events not even hinder for a good way to drive the story. I loved the romance and I loved the mystery. I can mix them up and I won't find anything wrong in this book.

Leyla Pemberton fights against all her family for unlocking the curse but she just has Collin by her side. The suspense was eating her alive and so do I with her in each page.

Succeed into the tempest

My Father teaches me to fight in the middle of the tempest and I don’t drift myself along to my fears or for the big waves around me gain control over my ship and knock it down.

My Father gives me strength at the moment higher the tempest, when my strength cannot grip the thick rope from the most important post and my hands are full of wounded and tear and bleed because of the rubbing from the rope, then I give up almost fainted, release the rope and He grip it instead.

My Father gives me peace while the waves swamp the entire ship, while the sail are rent in two by the powerful wind and I don’t feel any fear as the wood creaks and protests while I’m coming to my cabin because I know that my Lord is looking after everything and I can be carefree.

In my bed I find His hands waiting for me, they are curving and ready for me. They are covering me by the wind seeping in through the crack wood from the wall. Cover myself with His blanket of peace and that let me fall into sleep. I can drift alone by the sleep even when everything around me seems to sink lower because my Captain is my Lord and if I feel totally safe having my Captain who is my rudder as well, What am I afraid of? 

My Lord will take the safest road even when I don’t understand why we must to go through the tempest for going out because He knows the best for me ever.

With Him, I will repose…
