Excerpts

To those of us who love Jane Austen, she is like the brightness of burnished silver. Something lovely, with sparkle, that makes our world more beautiful. I adore her. I love the pleasure she gives with a wellturned line, the way she can make you actually laugh out loud, the bite of her sarcasm, how she lets you fall in love again and again.
