Book Review: Jane of Austin
Oh, how I love anything that is Jane Austin inspired. So when I saw this book I knew I had to get it. It was a very charming book. This was such a tastefully done book. I believe it stayed true to Jane Austin's style of writing. This book has a lot of parallels to sense and sensibility.
The book is unsurprisingly modern though. I really enjoyed the sister's relationship and how believeable they were. These three sisters have to get out of quite a sticky situation. There has been a large scandal surrounding their father. I enjoyed the mystery of this plot line. In order to overcome this, they decide to open their own business. Of course, the business is a tea shop.
I really enjoyed the female empowerment in this book. Their shop is in San Fransico, They have to overcome another challenge and find themselves in Austin Texas. Which I thought it was fun. These girls have so much adventure in their lives I was a little jealous, to be honest.
This is a romantic tale, something super passionate as well as innocence. The writing style was surprisingly lovely and interesting. The song and recipes that are through out this book. It reads extremely easy. This is something I will read again!
Disclaimer: I received this book for free in exchange for my honest and authentic opinions. All thoughts are my own. Thanks to Blogging for Books for this amazing read.
“Know your own happiness. You want nothing but patience - or give it a more fascinating name, call it hope.”―Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility
Just a few years after their father’s business scandal shatters their lives, Jane and Celia Woodward find themselves forced out of their San Francisco tea shop. The last thing Jane wants is to leave their beloved shop on Valencia Street, but when Celia insists on a move to Austin, Texas, the sisters pack up their kid sister Margot and Jane’s tea plants, determined to start over yet again.
But life in Austin isn’t all sweet tea and breakfast tacos. Their unusual living situation is challenging and unspoken words begin to fester between Jane and Celia. When Jane meets and falls for up-and-coming musician Sean Willis, the chasm grows deeper.
While Sean seems to charm everyone in his path, one person is immune – retired Marine Captain Callum Beckett. Callum never meant to leave the military, but the twin losses of his father and his left leg have returned him to the place he least expected—Texas.
In this modern spin on the Austen classic, Sense and Sensibility, the Woodward sisters must contend with new ingredients in unfamiliar kitchens, a dash of heartbreak, and the fragile hope that maybe home isn't so far away
