I'll be reviewing the second book featured below, Yours Affectionately, Jane Austen, later in Austen in August. And the book's author, Sally Smith O'Rourke, will be taking part in some of our Austenite interview-conversations. But until then, how'd you like to snag these? =D

about The Man Who Loved Jane Austen
Get It | Add It
F. Darcy? Fitzwilliam Darcy, the fictional hero of Jane Austen's Pride and Predjudice? Even more mysterious was the other letter, sealed and never read--"from Jane to Darcy. Could this man, possibly the most romantic character ever written and the hero of Eliza's favorite novel, have been a real person? Eliza's initial guarded curiosity turns to astonishment as scientific testing confirms the sealed letter was indeed addressed by Jane Austen. But she is completely baffled by the revelation that the other letter, though proven to be form the same period--"was written by an American. Caught between the routine of her present life and the intrigue of those incredible discoveries from the past, Eliza decides to look deeper. Her research leads to a majestic 200-year-old estate in Virginia's breathtaking Shenandoah Valley where she meets the one man who may hold the answer. But he also has a secret, one he has kept hidden for years. Now, as the real story of Fitzwilliam Darcy unfolds, Eliza finds her life has become a modern-day romance, one that perhaps only Jane Austen herself could have eloquently written.

about Yours Affectionately, Jane Austen
Get It | Add It
Was Mr. Darcy real? Is time travel really possible? For pragmatic Manhattan artist Eliza Knight the answer to both questions is absolutely, Yes! And Fitzwilliam Darcy of Pemberley Farms, Virginia is the reason why!

His tale of love and romance in Regency England leaves Eliza in no doubt that Fitz Darcy is the embodiment of Jane Austen’s legendary hero. And she’s falling in love with him. But can the man who loved the inimitable Jane Austen ever love average, ordinary Eliza Knight?

Eliza’s doubts grow, perhaps out of proportion, when things start to happen in the quiet hamlet of Chawton, England; events that could change everything. Will the beloved author become the wedge that divides Fitz and Eliza or the tie that binds them?

  1. I don't know what I would do if I found myself in Regency England! Maybe search for toiletries?

  2. I would visit my family - at least I know where they would be living

  3. Probably invent a flushing toilet. :)

  4. I'd go shopping for bonnets. Love all the bonnets.

  5. I think I would find a rich suitor right away so I wouldn't have to live poor. LOL

  6. No idea! I guess I would hope for the perfect open-minded someone to come along and take pity on me.

    I've read the first 'The Man Who Loved Jane Austen' and look forward to reading 'Yours Affectionately'.

  7. I think I'd make sure I'd be able to get back to the present.

  8. If I could go back in time and return to the present, I'd snag Jane Austen's letters and journals before her sister burned them!

  9. Find some decent undergarments! Corset free please :)

  10. I would seek to befriend Jane and of course look for my very own Mr Darcy or Captain Wentworth!!! :) Cheers~ Elizabeth MacGregor
