“Jane and the Waterloo Map,” By Stephanie Barron/A Review From The Blog Tour

While I can’t stand Charles Dickens, we did read this one some years back. Even I would listen to some of it read by Richard Armitage.

“I’m still struck, when looking at the fate of Emma abroad, how little the English setting of three or four families in a country village mattered to foreign publishers and translators. They have always reworked the novel to suit the tastes of their original readers.” Gillian Dow wrote about translations–and Emma in the snow–for “Emma in the Snow.”
