If You Like Jane Austen...

August 13, 2017 at 9:00 PM

If you like Jane Austen, you should check out one of the novels inspired by her life and work. Undressing Mr. Darcy, by Karen Doornebos, is a story about Vanessa Roberts, who takes on public relations for a very private man from England who's written a book called "My Year as Mr. Darcy." Can this old-fashioned man find his way into Vanessa's heart without so much as a GPS? Another great read is Austenland, by Shannon Hale. Obsessed with Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy in the BBC's "Pride and Prejudice," Jane Hayes escapes to an English resort catering to Austen-crazed women to try and live her fantasy. If you enjoy the book, you should also check out the movie. For more suggestions, our book list can be found here.
