Guess These Famous Last Words

Can you guess these classic titles by their last lines?


  1. "Tomorrow, I’ll think of some way to get him back. After all, tomorrow is another day."
  2. "It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known.”
  3. "Oh, my girls, however long you may live, I never can wish you a greater happiness than this."
  4. "I lingered round them, under that benign sky; watched the moths fluttering among the heath, and hare-bells; listened to the soft wind breathing through the grass; and wondered how anyone could ever imagine unquiet slumbers, for the sleepers in that quiet earth."
  5. "'God's in his heaven, all’s right with the world,' whispered Anne softly."
  6. “But, in spite of these deficiencies, the wishes, the hopes, the confidence, the predictions of the small band of true friends who witnessed the ceremony, were fully answered in the perfect happiness of the union.”
  7.  “But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs."
  8. "With the Gardiners, they were always on the most intimate terms. Darcy, as well as Elizabeth, really loved them, and they were both sensible of the warmest gratitude towards persons who, by bringing her into Derbyshire, had been the means of uniting them."
  9. “How shall I ever tell Aunt Shaw?” she whispered, after some time of delicious silence.
    “Let me speak to her.”
    “Oh, no! I owe to her,—but what will she say?”
    “I can guess. Her first exclamation will be, ‘That man!’”
    “Hush!' said Margaret, “or I shall try and show you your mother's indignant tones as she says, ‘That woman!’”
  10. “She gloried in being a sailor’s wife, but she must pay the tax of quick alarm for belonging to a profession which is, if possible, more distinguished in its domestic virtues than in it’s national importance.”

The Last Word Book Launch Party

What a lovely group of people! I am so grateful for the friends, family, and even a few fans (I didn't know I had those) who came to support me at The King's English Bookshop in SLC. They were gracious enough to wear the fascinators and pearl earrings that I made. Fancy Nancy would have approved.   I was in conversation with Mackenzi Lee and we had a great time talking about Victorian underwear and my book, The Last Word. The best part of my writer's journey has been the friends that I've made.  The Novel 19s group  (Authors debuting this year: Addie Thorley, me, Erin Stewart, Tiana Smith, Crystal Pasternack, RuthAnne Snow, and Crystal Smith) There's so many amazing authors in Utah and they are the kindest people you'll ever meet. And sometimes silly, Summer and I are lifting a leg. I'm not sure why.
(More amazing local authors: Emily R. King, Tricia Levenseller, me, Kathryn Purdie, and Summer Spence) 
It was a wonderful night and I am so very grateful.

The Last Word Tea Party / Book Launch

"So what do you do at a book launch?" my mom asked me.

In case you've never been to a book launch either, I'll tell you. A book launch is really a party for the book. Who doesn't love a party, right? All parties are a little different, but some things you can expect at a book launch:  The author to talk about and/or read from their bookQ & A with the audienceBook signings at the end And more...Stick out your pinkies, friends, we're going full out Tea Party style at my book launch for, The Last Word.  First things, first. What's a tea party without a fascinator? I made a ton of these cute little hair accessories so you can feel just like Kate Middleton (Prince William not included).
Come early and pick your favorite to put in your hair! I also made pearl earrings for all of you too. I only wish that I could feed you delicious tea party treats, but the bookstore didn't think that was a very good idea by all of their new books. Go figure! I am going to…
