Summary

The second issue of a digital journal created to alleviate the malaise of social distancing with exceptional writing and artwork.
 
The Quarantine Review celebrates literature and art, connecting readers through reflections on the human condition — our lived experiences, afflictions, and dreams. As we face a pandemic with profound implications, the essays within offer a variety of perspectives on the current predicament, encouraging readers to reflect on the world we knew before and contemplate how society can be reshaped once we emerge. Through The Quarantine Review, Dupuis and Sarfraz hope to give voice to the swirling emotions inside each of us during this unprecedented moment, to create a circuit of empathy between the reader, the work itself, and the wider world beyond the walls of our homes. 
 
This issue includes writing from Waris Ahluwalia, Catherine Bush, Roseanne Carrara, J.J. Dupuis, Khandijah Kanji, J.J. Martin, C.S. O'Cinneide, Terese Mason Pierre, Teri Vlassopoulos, and artwork by Blaise Moritz.

    The first in the new Counterpoints series, Think Little is an evergreen, ever-urgent, and now pocket-sized argument for focused and inclusive climate change activism
    Designed and priced for point-of-sale, the Counterpoints series will feature essays, poems, and stories from Wendell Berry, Gary Snyder, Mary Robison, Betty Fussell, MFK Fisher, and many more
    Berry argues that environmental activism and policy change cannot only be a public, large-scale, corporate- and organization-led; instead, changes must happen at the person, individual, and community levels in order for our attempts to slow climate change to be successful. Just as the Civil Rights movement had to become personal, had to be adopted in homes and communities across the country in order to gain momentum and critical mass, so too does environmental activism
    Berry also reminds us that the forces that would exploit people based on their race, gender, and socioeconomic status are the same forces that are content to exploit the earth for its natural resources

    This holiday, spend quality time with family and loved ones—living and dead . . . 
    There's no place like home for the horrordays—unless you'd prefer a romantic midnight walk through a ghost-infested graveyard . . . or a haunted house candlelight dinner with the sexy vampire of your dreams. The (black) magical season is here—and whether it's a solstice séance gone demonically wrong with the incomparable Kim Harrison, a grossly misshapen Christmas with the remarkable Lynsay Sands, a blood-chilling-and-spilling New Year's with the wonderful Marjorie M. Liu, or a super-powered Thanksgiving with the phenomenal Vicki Pettersson, one thing is for certain: in the able hands of these exceptional dark side explorers, the holidays are going to be deliciously hellish!

    ❝There could have never been two hearts so open, no tastes so similar, no feelings so in unison, no countenances so beloved.❞ –Jane Austen 
    A Limited Edition Collection! 
    Here's a chance to add to your growing collection of Pride and Prejudice 'what-if' stories with two P. O. Dixon stories for under the price of one, plus a special bonus story just because. 
     
     
    Book One - Only a Heartbeat Away 
     
    Long before they meet, Miss Elizabeth Bennet entertains notions of Mr. Darcy as being good-natured, compassionate, and exceedingly handsome. Indeed, everything a gentleman ought to be. In light of the ardent disdain that he incites in her family and friends at the Meryton assembly, reconciling her favorable impression of him proves deeply unsettling. Hence she goes about making out his true nature. Boasting to the gentleman of an acquaintance with his worst enemy, however, hardly recommends her to him. 
     
    Tempestuous sparks promise to ignite into passionate flames as Darcy and Elizabeth endeavor to sketch each other’s character. 
     
    Praise for Only a Heartbeat Away: 
     
    ❝This is one story that captured my heart and soul! Thanks to Ms. Dixon for another riveting adaptation of a most beloved book!!❞ –Liz C., Amazon Reader 
     
    ❝I love Lizzy and Darcy, and I love what Dixon continually does to my beloved characters in her books.❞ –Books Hug Back 
     
     
    Book Two - Miss Elizabeth Bennet: Where the Heart Lives 
     
    Mr. Darcy emerges as a hero in Miss Elizabeth Bennet’s eyes almost from the start. With such a beginning, one might think the journey to happily ever after for Jane Austen’s beloved couple would be absent any bumps in the road. On the contrary. There are quite a few fires to be put out along the way. 
     
    Praise for Miss Elizabeth Bennet: 
     
    ❝What a setup! It makes for compelling reading through to the last page. Georgiana plays a significant role here, and there's plenty of good interplay between Darcy and Elizabeth. It's well written, as usual for this author. Good stuff!❞ –Debbie B., Goodreads Reader 
     
    ❝This is a very interesting and entirely new version of Pride and Prejudice from P.O. Dixon. All of her stories are unique and entertaining, ...❞ –Colleen C., Goodreads Reader 
     
      
    BONUS BOOK! 
    Lady Harriette: Fitzwilliam's Heart and Soul 
     
    Their hasty courtship and subsequent marriage notwithstanding, Colonel Fitzwilliam finds himself deeply in love with his beautiful wife. However, having seduced his innocent young bride, a single question haunts him—does he truly deserve his happiness? 
     
    Her husband’s lack of fortune never concerned Lady Harriette. She loves him. Young, spirited, and confident, she has always enjoyed a charmed life. When Richard’s past lands on their doorstep, suspicion rears its head, and Harriette’s questions go unanswered. Seeking explanations on her own is her only recourse. Will she uncover more than she bargained for? 
     
    Praise for Lady Harriette: 
     
    ❝While keeping the beloved Pride and Pride story in motion and being respectful of the Austen characters we adore, Dixon creates a continuing tale with romance and intrigue.❞ –Books Hug Back 
     
    ❝This is truly a romance novel with some steamy love scenes, so please take heed. You are forewarned and forearmed for a great read. I highly recommend it.❞ –Austenprose
