Literary Question for the Day.

So, if you have read or seen any rendition of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice you are familiar with Mr. Wickham's "infamous elopement" with Lydia Bennet. The question for today is: Why did Mr. Wickham choose Lydia in the first place? Was it to get revenge on Mr. Darcy? True affection for Lydia? Hmmm, food for thought. We would looove to read any thoughts you might have in the comment section :)

Also, a book review of Parson Austen's Daughter by Helen Ashton is coming soon!
