2- Camping next weekend. I'm hopeful there will be beautiful colors in the high country. I always seem to miss peak leaf viewing. 🏕🍁🍂🍃

This was an enjoyable read. I liked the lovers separated over several years, only to be reunited and have awkward exchanges. All of the usual jealousy, mixed signals and longing happens in this book in a beautiful way.

3. MacFayden!
4. Elinor Dashwood. Or was it Eleanor Thompson 🤣
5. Captain Wentworth
6. Willoughby and maybe Colonel Brandon (he‘s a little villainy when he dresses as Snape!) 🧙‍♂️
7. Thompson‘s S&S. Perfectly captures the soul of the characters and the heart of the story!

I read this about seven years ago. Out of all the Austen novels, I remembered the least about this one. Though I cannot easily relate to this heroine, I was invested and rooting for her from the start. Austen again weaves human nature so well into the tale I‘m glad for the reread. #ArdentlyAustenBookClub

As I was thinking about staging a photo, I determined the photo on the cover was simply perfect.

“She prized the frank, the open-hearted, the eager character beyond all others. Warmth and enthusiasm did captivate her still. She felt that she could so much more depend upon the sincerity of those who sometimes looked or said a careless or hasty thing, than of those whose presence of mind never varied, whose tongue never slipped.”

Anne's family doesn't approve of her engagement so she breaks it off and he joins the Navy. Eight years later, he dates Anne's friend who hits her head and he runs away. He comes back to hang with Anne and her family and friends but she's dating someone else. He overhears her talking about how women love the longest and he writes her a letter... no spoilers!

Melissa_J Fully agree. I hate it when people refer to Pride and Prejudice as a romance novel. It‘s not. Yes, there is a love story in it, but just because a novel contains a love story doesn‘t automatically make it a romance novel. 5mo

jenniferajanes @HOTPock3tt @emz711 I guess I need to think more about why I like it. It has been one of my all-time favorite books since I read it in high school, and I‘ve read it multiple times since then. Time for reflection.... 5mo

This is the box that made me cancel my #coffeeandaclassic subscription box. Idk why, but everyone else on IG had a beautiful, pink, hardcover. Mine was neither beautiful, pink, or hard. I reached out to them...no response, so I cancelled. Comparison is the thief of joy, I guess.
