When one has read the six great Austen novelsand then reread and then reread the six again, ones only recourse is the company of others equally bereft. Cindy Joness My Jane Austen Summer fills the gap with a nourishing Austen-soaked setting, a wonderfully surprising plot, and Lily, a delightfully peculiar heroine. Karen Joy Fowler, author of The Jane Austen Book Club Author Cindy Jones has a gift for the millions of readers everywhere who have been enchanted by Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, and the other wondrous works of the inimitable Austennot to mention fans of more contemporary delights such as The Jane Austen Book Club. Joness My Jane Austen Summer is a delightful, funny, poignant novel in which a contemporary womanan obsessed Austenphilelearns much about life, love, and herself during one magical summer in England spent re-enacting Jane Austens Mansfield Park.

Finished my next #litsylovechallenge book gifted by @BarbaraBB

It's a nice story about an American girl, who travels to England, since she will work at a Jane Austen's festival for a summer. I liked the idea of the novel, but I had my difficulties with the main character and her attitude.
I can understand, that she has her problems, living in another land, but since all the problems seem to concentrate on her, it was often too much.

BarbaraBB Ah, I had forgotten all about it. But I thought at the time it belonged in your Austen-collection! 😘 4mo
Sarah83 @BarbaraBB it was a nice idea. 🤩 Do you enjoy your USA trip? 4mo
BarbaraBB Yes very much. It is very different from Europe, much more than I would have thought. One more week to go! 4mo

julesG Enjoy your last holiday days! 4mo

Panpan

I hate to pan anything, it makes me feel guilty. I just can't in good conscience recommend this one. The main character spends most of the book as a nutter with Jane Austen's presence always by her side. Farcical to the point of tedium, if that makes sense. There were a few glimmers of humor.
