Today is Jane Austen’s birthday! A fine day to spend with friends — and fellow Janeites — and a perfect day to announce the release of What Jane Austen Didn’t Tell Us!
For lovers of Pride and Prejudice, the characters are like old friends. Everyone knows the who and the what of the cherished tale, but What Jane Austen Didn’t Tell Us! fills in the how, why – and especially the when.
Seventeen dramatic portraits take us into the lives of the story’s beloved figures before they enter the pages of the novel. Triumphs and follies, victories and social disasters, the characters’ pasts reveal hidden secrets, unexpected intersections, and new motivations for all the goings-on from Longbourn to Pemberley – and all places in between.
Contributing writers include: Linda Dennery, Gene Gill, Bill McCay, Linda Pedro, Rosemarie Santini, Anvita Budhraja, Meg Levin, Clarice Neudorfer, Mary C. M. Phillips, A. Marie Sprayberry and Paul Wray.
Happy Birthday Jane!
