What a fabulous thought... I believe that I would choose Ms. Poppy Hathaway from Lisa Kleypas's Hathaways Series. This girl has spunk, charm and such determination to be her own woman. My inner lady (Victorian Era Lady that is) is so down with the romanticized gentlemen and still dream of coming out parties, and ball gowns ,and let's not forget the thought of an unspeakable interlude one might find themselves in at a ton-hosted ball. Oh, yes, I do say that switching places with young Poppy Hathaway would be most thrilling.
If you haven't read the Hathaway series by the lovely Lisa Kleypas I suggest that you do if you enjoy historical fictional, romance novels set in Victorian England.
