The best retelling of Jane Austen’s P&P I have ever come across! Delicious!
An English murder mystery set in the Regency on a post Pride and Prejudice framework. I listened to the audiobook and watched the mini-series.
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.
Imagine you wake up in another person’s life — 200 years in the future.
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.
All the kids are doing it! Why did youngsters run to Gretna Green to get married? Where was it?
