After releasing their first holiday anthology about Christmas magic and festive spirits, this lovely team of six talented and inventive writers has joined forces again to give us readers another holiday anthology brimming with Janeite goodness, fun, and love! (Can I get a woot woot?!?) This time we are celebrating all things spring – baseball, Easter miracles, weddings, and spring break. In this anthology there are six contemporary short stories, and each story is inspired by and pays tribute to a specific Jane Austen novel.
I hope you find this breakdown helpful!
EXTRA INNINGS – Jessica Grey
The Premise: A new assistant coach joins the Chawton Choppers club and he just happens to be the man Anne Elliot, administrative assistant and social media guru to the Choppers, broke an engagement with ten years ago…
What I Loved: Jane Austen and Baseball! Yes. Anne was awesome – I felt connected to her right away, she was a wonderful blend of dependability, kindness, and quiet passion. I also loved seeing her stand up for herself – twice! And Rick Wentworth…sigh. I love how he delivered his famous “half agony, half hope” letter – brilliant and adorable! The inspiring baseball epigraphs were a perfect touch. Loved it all! One of my faves!
