The best retelling of Jane Austen’s P&P I have ever come across! Delicious!
Every lover of Jane Austen would love to know what happened to Lizzie and Mr. Darcy after the wedding. Now we know….
In an alternate history, the works of Jane Austen take on a certain glamour — as in the ability to transform the appearance of one’s self and environs. Is enhancing one’s appearance in this alternate history cheating anymore than lipstick and foundation or control top pantyhose is in our own?
It’s unimaginable that Jane Austen did not write P & P, Is it not? But is it possible? And imagine what would happen if you had proof.
Jane Austin, her sister and mother visit their brother’s parsonage but they wind up at a dangerous house party for the twelve days of Christmas. Will Jane fall: in love or over dead, before she is able to solve the mystery with her detective skills?

Jane, whose life is contemporaneous to Jane Austen’s life, wakes up in the 21st Century. Life lessons, and scrutiny of the differences and similarities of life then and now are interestingly and amusingly explored.

Some years ago while volunteering at the Tate House Museum in Portland, Maine, I learned of a beverage called flip. It was popular in England and the American Colonies in the 17th and 18th centuries. It seems we often come across names of beverages that seem odd when we read historical fiction or historic classics […]
