Guess That Character! Reveal Day - Introducing Miss Della

Wow!  Thank you to everyone for their wonderful guesses at Della's character.  Yesterday I had great fun reading as many snippets as possible, I hope you did too. 

And now part two of Guess That Character is that we reveal a picture and confirm who had the closest guess.  Cue the trumpet and bring out the sparkly dust!  Ladies and Gents, I give you the lovely Miss Della!






Della is almost twenty, and lives in the early 1900's.  Her family are plantation owners in the South Seas.   Della is fiesty, independent and unruly at times but a true beauty with a big heart!  Her long brown hair is usually pulled up into a bun and her sea-green eyes capture many a suitors heart.  She is sent back to England to keep her Grandmamma company for a short period of time after her Grandfathers death.  During her stay, she is drawn to a mysterious englishman whom she meets in a park one evening.





There were so many great guesses, I think most of you guessed Della's hair colour and eyes, and quite a few picked up that it's a period romance.  Of all the guesses - I think Francine nailed her character!  

Francine:  "I'm guessing this is a slightly dated piece(breeches) so on that premise: she's athletic yet full of figure, long brunette tresses, turquoise blue eyes edged deeper blue, wild of spirit, unruly manners at times, and a bit of a madam when she feels so inclined!"








A/N: Thank you all so much for the lovely comments!  And thank you to our lovely Jen for organising such a great blogfest.  I am still catching up on all the entries.  Photos credit - Photobucket.
