In case you weren't aware, Ms. Jones' My Jane Austen Summer is being released today! I have my own review copy on its way and I simply cannot wait to spend some of my pre-summer with our beloved Jane.
Here is the synopsis for My Jane Austen Summer.
Lily has squeezed herself into undersized relationships all her life, hoping one might grow as large as those found in the Jane Austen novels she loves. But lately her world is running out of places for her to fit. So when her bookish friend invites her to spend the summer at a Jane Austen literary festival in England, she jumps at the chance to reinvent herself.
There, among the rich, promising world of Mansfield Park reenactments, Lily finds people whose longing to live in a novel equals her own. But real-life problems have a way of following you wherever you go, and Lily's accompany her to England. Unless she can change her ways, she could face the fate of so many of Miss Austen's characters, destined to repeat the same mistakes over and over again.
My Jane Austen Summer explores how we fall in love, how we come to know ourselves better, and how it might be possible to change and be happier in the real world.
Doesn't that sound fantastic? Aren't you dying to read it?
Happy Tuesday, all!
