A VERY big thank you to Eliza Shearer for making a special visit to Austenesque Reviews, it was so great to learn more about her unique sequel to Pride and Prejudice and discuss how some Jane Austen’s female characters brought a lot of wealth to their marriages and some did not!  I’m now looking forward even more to reading Miss Darcy’s Beaux next month!

Also, thank you to Eliza for her generosity in sponsoring this giveaway!

Thank you to all of you who stopped by to read Eliza’s post and share your thoughts.  We loved hearing your opinions!  Your enthusiasm is awesome!

In addition, I was bowled over with the lovely tributes and comments everyone left on my Our Lives Without Jane Austen post early in this week.  It is hard to express in words how much Jane Austen means to me and how grateful I am that she has so impacted my life.  I was really touched to read all the responses and I appreciated what everyone shared and said.

I thought I would add a double giveaway to that post as a surprise!  One winner who commented on that post will receive a pair of fun Jane Austen socks and one winner will receive any book they want from the Book Depository (limit $15).

I think one of the best ways Jane Austen has changed my life is that she brought all these readers and authors and friends into it!  My life is richer for our relationships and I am so thankful for everyone in this community! xoxo 😀
