I think you all know my own personal little "renascence woman", my niece Sarah;
She asked for your help yesterday and I promised to pass it on. so if you will take five minutes to take a look I would be very grateful...

Sarah says; I am 13 years old and would love to write a novel, here’s the plot;

It is set in early 1800…
A young English girl at 19 years old is getting employed at a rich old man around 60 and his wife. The live in a big mansion and she should stay there for 6 months and live in the mansion too.
She starts snooping around a little, discovering things about the man and the wife, by listening through the keyholes. She hears that the wife will leave the man and that the man has financial problems.
Some time after the wife leaves, the girl falls in love with the young Gartner, and they enjoy each others company during breaks and stuff.
One day the Gartner get picked up by the police, as the old man says he has stolen some valuables from the mansion, and is to be beheaded (I think that can be the punishment at that time)
She is grieving for some time, and something happens, and one day she hears through the keyhole that the old man is in love with her, and got rid of the Gartner so he could get her for himself.
Unable to keep that secret, she tells the Cook and Cook tells the Butler, which ends up telling the man.
Te old man and the girls have a long talk and they end up in bed.
The old man get in some trouble, and the girl helps as she has heard a lot through the keyhole.
At the end the man gets out of the trouble and the man and the girl gets married.

The title will be “What Carry Mcleen heard through the keyhole.”
As for a 60 year old man in bed with the young girl, I imagine that she might be a little in love with the man, and feels better by being loved back. Should I maybe make her 21 or 22 instead?
Does it sound any good) Help please.

So if you have any comments here, please let her know....

I'm not sure of the age at the times of the 1800's of when a women gets involved with a much older man. I would try to look up on the internet and see if you get any hits. I believe at the time it was a very young age. But men didn't stay alive as long as they do now, that's something to consider. Find that out too. People had a much smaller life span back then.

She should keep her at this age (or even, I would make her younger). People around that time used to date and marry much older men. I would love to read it. Would you send me a copy of it if it gets published? :)

This is a lovely premise for a book - mysterious, intriguing, lots of human drama!

I look forward to reading the whole thing when it is published!

Good luck, Sarah.

It sounds brilliant to me! Sarah is very clever to be thinking of writing a novel at only 13! It's a great plot, and I wish her the best of luck with it! ♥

*hugs you*

Thank you Darling, that is so nice of you. She´ll be so happy to know you like it;)

Wow, I'm really impressed! The plot is really mature for a 13 years old girl (or I'm maybe not talking to enough young girls nowadays ^^), and it does look like Sarah gave a lot of thinking about it.

I wish her good luck, she has to carry on with her dream. :D

Thanks darling, I´m really pleased that you took time to comment here, it means a lot to her.
Yeah, it started with a dream she had, and then she thought it over, and we´ve talked a lot about it.
She is so happy that some real authors will give her comments.♥
