My immediate answer is Game of Thrones. Who doesn’t love a bloody medieval fantasy full of twists and turns?
Do you have a specific room in your house or a coffee shop which you like to write in?
If you had the choice of going back in time or going to the future, which one would you choose and why?

What would you have done if you were in Evangeline’s position?

Whether or not Evangeline’s and Angela’s mother is a reflection of all mothers in nineteenth century depends on the individuals in the time period. I never stereotype a group. I always dissect the individual. I’m certain there where mothers who browbeat their children into making decisions meant to advance their own lives. Abuse and nagging might’ve been a means to carry this out. Of course, there were also loving, caring mothers who sought for the best for their children. However, no matter the character of a mother, the majority of aristocratic families placed their children in the “marriage market” to win the hand of a spouse who would advance their position in society, add wealth to the family coffers, and in-laws to boast about. Daniel Pool explains this perfectly in his book What Jane Austen Ate and Charles Dickens Knew.
