7 June 2012

Today's question is -- "Favorite secondary characters?"

When faced with these sorts of questions it seems I am always reverting back to a few of my all time favorites and this time is no exception.

The first that comes to mind is "Blackie" in A Woman of Substance. hat is my  I saw the movie before I read the book and that is when I discovered Liam Neeson, one of my very favorite actors.  As I read the book, I saw Neeson and that just brought the book to life for me.

The second is "Cynthia" in the Mitford series book as well as the Father Tim books.  She is what I would like to be -- very real, very strong yet vulnerable at the  same time.  She is a natural, unassuming character that just sparkles.

Last but not least, I would be remiss if I didn't mention Aunt Dimity.  While the Aunt Dimity series is about Aunt Dimity, she is definitely not the character in the forefront yet, without her, there wouldn't be a book.  If I were dead, I would like to be Aunt Dimity -- she possesses qualities that are top notch -- logical, calm, resourceful, helpful and always available! Yes, if I had to be a ghost, she would be a great role model.
