The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen
The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen | Syrie James
3 posts | 12 read | 7 to read
Many rumors abound about a mysterious gentleman said to be the love of Jane's life—finally, the truth may have been found. . . . What if, hidden in an old attic chest, Jane Austen's memoirs were discovered after hundreds of years? What if those pages revealed the untold story of a life-changing love affair? That's the premise behind this spellbinding novel, which delves into the secrets of Jane Austen's life, giving us untold insights into her mind and heart. Jane Austen has given up her writing when, on a fateful trip to Lyme, she meets the well-read and charming Mr. Ashford, a man who is her equal in intellect and temperament. Inspired by the people and places around her, and encouraged by his faith in her, Jane begins revising Sense and Sensibility, a book she began years earlier, hoping to be published at last. Deft and witty, written in a style that echoes Austen's own, this unforgettable novel offers a delightfully possible scenario for the inspiration behind this beloved author's romantic tales. It's a remarkable book, irresistible to anyone who loves Jane Austen—and to anyone who loves a great story.

#Staycationintimeswap @Chrissyreadit @BookishTrish Patricia, you are awesome! I couldn‘t be happier with my Jane Austen themed box. You spoiled me and I can only hope that you enjoy the box I sent to you just as much. By the way, despite my obsession with all things Jane, I don‘t have any of these books or treasures, so well done you!

StayCurious @Chrissyreadit what a fun swap! Thank you! 5d
Chrissyreadit 😍🙌🥰Love it! 5d

#JaneAustenSwap Thank you so much for all of these goodies @Sorceryandswords ~ I ❤ the Sense and Sensibility theme & it honestly doesn't matter that the tagged book was second hand!

Thanks @sprainedbrain & @mabell for organising!

BookishMe Lovely goodies!! ;D 1y
Sophoclessweetheart I‘m so pleased you like them! I tried to make it perfect to your preferences but there wasn‘t as much Northanger Abbey stuff than there was S&S so that‘s why I chose that of your two favourites. 🖤🖤 1y
jenniferw88 @Sorceryandswords no worries & i'm not surprised there's less Northanger Abbey stuff! 😂 1y

Day 3 #FallIntoBooks #cursive All of these paperbacks use cursive on the titles and spines. The top three I've read & enjoyed, the other six are in my #TBR stacks--a couple of new #ARCs (How to Change a Life & The Future She Left Behind) and some that have been there a while! 📚📚📚😬📚📚

lynneamch I really enjoyed Beautiful Ruins. Kind of quirky with lots of twists & turns. Voracious is easy to pick up for a quick chapter or two in between reading other things. Super foodie fun. 2y
RealLifeReading Nice covers! 2y
