 Excerpt:

What Happened to the Characters?

“In this traditionary way we learned that Miss Steele never succeeded in catching the Doctor; that Kitty Bennet was satisfactorily married to a clergyman near Pemberley, while Mary obtained nothing higher than one other uncle Philip’s clerks, and was content to be considered a star in the society of Meriton; that the ‘considerable sum’ given by Mrs Norris to  William Price was one pound; that Mr  Woodhouse survived his daughter’s marriage, and kept her and Mr Knightley from settling at Donwell, about two years; and that the letters placed by Frank Churchill before Jane Fairfax, which she swept away unread, contained the word ‘pardon’.”

—-James Edward Austen–Leigh and Anna Lefroy

  3. Jennifer Zorko-Legan

    My favorite Jane Austen books is Persuasion. I love Anne Elliot and really connect to her characher. She is down to earth and trys to take care of her family even though they treat her badly. I love the connection with Captain Wentworth and I am so happy that they got their HEA.

    my favorite is Emma; i like how she think that she is a good matchmaker but all of her matchmaking go wrong and at the end she too find love

    Hands down, Pride and Prejudice! I love it! Theres two romances in one, but i love Elizabeth. Shes fun yet serious at times, her personality is just so…captivating! 🙂 Thank you!!!!

  6. Genevieve

    I adore Emma ! I like the title character a lot although she has stubborn and slightly bratty personality, and I think the romance is sweet an dirt is so funny to read all her blunders

  7. Lori P

    Pride and Prejudice. I love how strong Elizabeth is, but at the same time you can tell that she is so uncertain about her feelings for Darcy.
