Pride and Prejudice
, Sense and Sensibility, Emma...these titles conjure up a romantic world of rolling English countrysides, elegant balls, noble gentlemen, and headstrong gentlemen's daughters. But how much do we know about the woman who immortalized those times and names like Mr. Darcy and Miss Elizabeth Bennett? Growing up in a clergyman's home gave Jane Austen opportunities to watch human nature at its best...and worst.


It's been a long time since I read this book, so I hesitate to add any real thoughts on the merits or cons... I can say that having sections of her own letters made the book for me. I loved reading those sections more than anything else. I am a huge Jane Austen fan and scoop up just about anything by, about and/or related to her. :o)


  1. Love the cover. I've seen this on a few other blogs, it looks interesting.

    Thanks for playing!!

  2. Hmmmm I should probably pick this book up since I'm a huge Austen fan too!

  3. Hi Vicki! Thanks for such a fun idea!

    Renee ~ I can't remember how good it was - so if you can borrow it, that's a lot better than buying. Maybe I should read it again. It did get pretty good reviews online... but you can't always go by that.
