So according to this quiz, I am most like Bella Wilfer. When I think about it, that sounds quite right, and is fine with me; I like Bella. Her story is so...neat! :-D I love the way she changes throughout the story, going from a bratty, self-centered, materialistic girl to a woman who loves selflessly, trusts, supports her husband, etc.

Feel free to do this if you want. :-)

Now I'm off to writing. TTFN! :-)

"Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain:
but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised."
(Proverbs 31:30)

I'd probably be closest to Agnes Wickfield. Next up would be Lizzie Hexam. Help me here, I suddenly can't place which book she is from. (Gasp)
I'm off to writing too! : )
