Who said it?
Read the quote and tell me who is speaking.

a. Lord Matlock
b. Georgiana
c. Mr. Keith
d. Col. Richard Fitzwilliam

2) “True love is it? How touching. Never would have suspected you to be the romantic type. Perhaps her gracing me with her lovely smiles was more than you could bear?”
a. Richard Fitzwilliam
b. Stephen Lathrop
c. Gerald Vernor
d. Marquis of Orman

3) “Elizabeth, do not fret. It will remain discreet and William would never be angry with you for this. You said no one noticed.”
a. Amelia Lathrop
b. Mrs. Reynolds
c. Georgiana
d. Lady Matlock

4) “Cute? I am not certain how manly it is to be labeled ‘cute.’”
a. Richard Fitzwilliam
b. Samuel
c. Darcy
d. Mr. Thurber

5) “I made no such promise. You merely asked me to pity your advanced age and presumed I would acquiesce. Besides, I have the utmost faith in your stamina and capabilities.”
a. Lizzy
b. Lady Matlock
c. Bertha Vernor
d. Mrs. Gardiner

6) “Miss Darcy, your bust is an amazing likeness. As is yours, Mr. Darcy. Superb artisanship. Mrs. Darcy, will you have a bust sculpted as well?”
a. Mrs. Reynolds

8) “In truth, Pemberley is not as difficult to navigate as some manors I have been in. Rosings, for instance, is far older, and I have always imagined the original architects taking perverse delight in designing a maze of halls and rooms with the singular intention of confusing the inhabitants.”
a. Mr. Keith
b. Darcy
c. Georgiana
d. Richard Fitzwilliam

9) “I am certain that Mr. Darcy has warned you that the rumors of your grace and beauty have preceded your entry into our little community. Now I shall be able to brag to all that I beheld you first and can glowingly proclaim that the rumors pale in comparison to the reality that was before me.”
a. Gerald Vernor
b. Henry Vernor
c. Lord Matlock
d. Mr. Taylor

10) “Richard exaggerates, my dear Georgiana. I am certain you would discover that the realities are contrary to his stories. Nonetheless, his wit does pass the time.”
a. Darcy
b. Jonathan Fitzwilliam
c. Lady Matlock
d. Stephen Lathrop

No stress! Just have fun with the quizzes. And remember, names will be added to the hat for the drawing to win a signed copy of Loving Mr. Darcy: Journeys Beyond Pemberley. I do hope you enjoyed yourselves. Now, don’t forget the ongoing discussion of Mr. and Mrs. FDarcy down the page! Great topics have been raised already, so lets keep it going.
