REVIEW:
Jane Austen fans, is this ever a treat for you!
This little gem of a book has literally everything listed inside that you could possibly imagine and more. Everything from her family history, her writing, her hobbies, you name it, it's in the book.
I absolutely loved the pages of poetry. I felt like I had a sincere glimpse into what her life and world was like back then. Her poetry shows how she felt then.
Tons of fun raveled into this book. I love how heartwarming it is, and am sure there are tons of you that will appreciate and love it too!
I dare say, you have to be a fan of Jane Austen's though, or this book may not have that affect on you.
