My Friday Finds in prep for [Jane] #AusteninAugust
beginning tomorrow.  Anticipaaaation ... !


In this elegant retelling of Pride and Prejudice, Mary at last learns – with a little help from the man she loves – to question her family's values and overcome her own brand of 'pride and prejudice' in
The Forgotten Sister.    440 pgs

I found this unabridged audio book available online via hoopla
which is quickly becoming a fav reading resource.
One abandoned, one unfinished, these short works show Austen equally at home with romance and social change. 
A widowed clergyman with four daughters must needs be in search of a husband or two, in The Watsons, as three badly behaved daughters search for husbands with the help of a recently reunited sister. 
In Sanditon, Charlotte Heywood becomes enthralled with a new, commercial seaside resort's scandalous residents.

Looking forward to this male author's writing viewpoint on Jane's own love life in a Jane Austen daydream.Jane Austen spends her days writing and matchmaking in the small countryside village of Steventon, until a ball at Godmersham Park propels her into a new world where she yearns for a romance of her own. But whether her heart will settle on a young lawyer, a clever Reverend, a wealthy childhood friend, or a mysterious stranger is anyone's guess.   412 pgs

What’s Georgiana Darcy’s story? Jane Austen tells us so little in Pride and Prejudice that we’re left to wonder. How did the early loss of her parents shape Miss Darcy’s character? And what about her near-disastrous affair with Mr. Wickham? Is that the true source of her shyness? She adores her brother and his new wife Elizabeth, but will their guiding influence be enough to steer Georgiana clear of new trouble as she comes of age and falls in love again?

Long awaiting this newest mystery in Carrie Bebris Mr and Mrs Darcy series.
Released July 14th, it's on library reserve. I'm hoping for an August arrival.

Suspicion at Sanditon, 
a new adventure takes Fitzwilliam and Elizabeth Darcy to Sanditon, the setting and title of Jane Austen’s final work.
In Sanditon, along with their friend Miss Charlotte Heywood, the Darcy's encounter an array of eccentric inhabitants.

 Tucked in an uncut page of a two-hundred-year old poetry book is a letter Samantha believes was written by Jane Austen, mentioning with regret, a manuscript that "went missing at Greenbriar in Devonshire." Could there really be an undiscovered Jane Austen novel waiting to be found? Could anyone resist the temptation to go looking for it?
After discovering the unattributed manuscript, Samantha and Anthony are immediately absorbed in the story of Rebecca Stanhope, daughter of a small town rector, who is about to encounter some bittersweet truths about life and love. As they continue to read the newly discovered tale from the past, a new one unfolds in the present--a story that just might change both of their lives forever.   433 pgs
