Oh my goodness y'all, I am soooo excited about this post!!! It has been quite a journey to finish this first draft and I can't believe it. Well, I hope you enjoy this!
What Time We Have Left
So yes, our setting is Hampshire, England. I was looking at pictures and it looks like it is a very green, very pretty place.
Ashby Manor (name subject to change)
And most of this novella (basically all if I'm being honest) is set in Ashby Manor. Because I messed up with the title (the title of a person and their last name are different), it will probably *something else* Manor once I figure out what title to give the Ashby's. There is this manor in England (not sure where) called Gravetye Manor and it fits my mental picture of Ashby Manor to a t.
The only difference between Popplewell and Ava is that Ava has bright green eyes. Besides that, Anna Popplewell IS Ava Pennington.
She is my FMC. A very sweet, very mellow person. She can be funny when she wants and she loves to read.
Mr. Charles Pennington
He is Ava's father. A lawyer. He cares a lot for Ava and is also worried about her health. His wife died a few hours after giving birth to Ava.
My MMC. He's also rather mellow and doesn't get angry very easily. He cares a great deal about the Penningtons and for his family.
Jameson's younger brother. He turned out to be most people's favorite character and will be getting his very own sequel.
Lord James Ashby
He is Jameson and Johnathon's father, Mr. Pennington's best friend, and Ava's godfather. He is the 7th Earl of something (STILL COMING UP WITH THAT PART).
Lady Amelia Ashby
Married to Lord Ashby. Mother to Jameson, Johnathon, and John. Motherly figure for Ava.
Older brother to Jameson and Johnathon. Was never really the same after being sent away.
Oh my gosh y'all. I am so freaking excited about this!!! I really hope you enjoy What Time We Have Left, because I really enjoyed writing it.

Other: There is one part that I tried to make vague, but a friend told me that I had made it too vague and it made it seem like something else happened, so yeah. Still need some opinions on that.
