  5 Responses to “A Comprehensive Guide to Austenesque Novels – Persuasion”


    Out of this list I have read the two Susan Kaye books, Possibilities, Jane Austen in Scarsdale, and Captain Wentworth’s Diary. My favorite would be the Susan Kaye novels, I loved the details and insight she gave to Captain Wentworth. Now that I found out about His Cunning or Hers, I want to check it out it is about Mrs. Clay and William Elliot. I love when the minor characters are in the spotlight!


    I loved the Susan Kaye books also. I also read Amanda Grange’s book, Regina Jeffers and have ordered Hile’s books. I am so eagerly looking forward to that. I look forward to the book about Mrs. Clay and William Elliot I also enjoy the minor characters in the spotlight.


    I am reading the first boomk in Mercy’s Embrace right now and it is going fantastic! I am so excited about there being two more books to enjoy!


    what wonderful introductions! thankyou “)
    glad to find these and helpful for the #Austenesque Extravaganza posts…


    I love the Susan Kaye triology and the Laura Hile Trilogy. Regina Jeffers book is good too. I have Mary Simonsen’s book, but haven’t gotten a chance to read it yet. Very nice list!
