GIVEAWAY and Review: Cassandra and Jane (from Meredith)

Meredith over at Austenesque reviews gave us a lovely review of Cassandra and Jane (it's on my wishlist!), as well as a little something special: your very own, spanking-new copy of the book!

Meredith says:

"One aspect of this novel I took pleasure in was observing the connections and similarities between Jane Austen and many of her character creations. Through this novel I was able to imagine her as a Marianne Dashwood when she was young and in love with Tom Lefory, a satirical Elizabeth Bennet with her biting wit, and perhaps a little bit of a Charlotte Lucas when she contemplated a marriage of convenience. I was also able to observe how Cassandra was the inspiration for Jane's quieter and gentler characters such as Jane Bingley and Elinor Dashwood. I think Ms. Pitkeathley did a marvelous job of re-imagining and rendering the personalities of these sisters."
