Amazing book, really a great read! This book is a combination of passages from Jane's novels

Pride and Prejudice
Sense and Sensibility
Mansfield Park and Northanger Abbey
But it also provides history into Jane Austen herself and gives even the newcomer into the Janeite world a beautiful picture of who Jane is. Taking you through her childhood, adolescents and adulthood. Through the private letters that she has sent to her sister Cassandra you can really see what her personality is and find a wonderful sense of Jane's wit and wisdom.

After reading this I see how Jane captures readers with her words and truths to most everything she says. She is a open book.

I loved this read because I have read Pride and Prejudice, Emma and Northanger Abbey but sometimes need to be reminded of the little quotes in the books and how fun she really is as an author. So I might read that novel again and again. For any Jane Austen fan or newby this book is a must and I give this book 5 out of 5 stars. ( )
