Welcome to week 20 of Sunday Poser
My question this week concerns our friends who are avid book readers;
My favorite fictional hero/ heroine is……
As I may have mentioned before, I grew up reading historical fiction/ romance books from my grandfather’s collection. He was a fan of Barbara Cartland and Georgette Heyer. He had almost the full collection of Heyer and lots of books of Cartland. As a teenager, I started to idealize those gutsy heroines from Georgette Heyer’s books who went against the expected norms of regency England’s society and established their own way of behaving. They showed spunk and grit while dealing with the ultra-conservative society of their time.
Now our eastern society was very much like that of the fictional world Heyer created. I wanted to be like those ladies who turned up their noses at the conservative norms and lived their lives according to how they wanted. The leading character from the book, Grand Sophy, was my ideal.
So who, if any fictional character has influenced your lives?
Please share your thoughts in the comments section.
