Jane, Actually or Jane Austen’s Book Tour by Jennifer Petkus

Jane, Actually or Jane Austen’s Book Tour
by Jennifer Petkus

Disclaimer: The author sent me an ebook.

What a delight! What a Tour de Janeite! AGM Fort Worth, Chawton, Harvard Book Store(ok, only one chapter)! Jane Austen is in the 21th Century(via the AfterNet!) and has finished Sanditon. She is on a book tour. So much wit and charm in the book. With footnotes! In my not so well state, I was occasionally confused about what was happening and how it related to the whole. Everything came to together in end. Parts of the ending I wanted more of a conclusion. Certain things seemed left open….sequel(or spin-off) please!

5 Regency Teacups!

” . . . Charlotte, having received possession of her apartment, found amusement enough in standing at her ample Venetian window and looking over the miscellaneous foreground of unfinished buildings, waving linen and tops of houses, to the sea, dancing and sparkling in sunshine and freshness.”

Change is….evolutionary! 🙂

Can you make heads or tails of Jane Austen’s letter to her sister? Jane penned the note over the course of three days, finishing it 205 years ago today.http://bit.ly/Xk3B7w
 
Lol, never trust real estate ads! I strongly believe the information in the ad that Harris and Jane were engaged at Tangier Park is wrong. I have read that it was Manydown House that one night engagement took place. Tangier was owned by another family until Harris purchased it in the early 1830’s, according to my research. -Kirk

Tangier Park: It was in this 17th-century Hampshire home that Jane Austen was briefly engaged – for all of a day – to the delightfully named Harris Bigg-Wither. She is known to have enjoyed visiting Tangier Park – she was good friends with his sisters – and it is documented that she enjoyed walking in the countryside surrounding the house. If you fancy similar leisurely strolls, then the house, which still has grounds of 100 acres, is on the market for £6m and is listed here: http://www.knightfrank.com/bsk100115

“We have lived long enough in this Neighborhood, the Basingstoke Balls are certainly on the decline, there is something interesting in the bustle of going away, & the prospect of spending future summers by the Sea or in Wales is very delightful.” Jane Austen to Cassandra January 3, 1801
