    "The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen" a new novel about our favorite author.

    Hey all you Jane Austen fans, a new novel starring our girl will be on sale in November, The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen by Syrie James. I picked up the advance readers edition at my store last week. I haven't gotten around to starting it yet, still trying to finish The Jane Austen Book Club.




    Taken from the back cover: "Hidden in an old chest in her brother's attic, Jane Austen's memoirs are uncovered after hundreds of years. Written shortly before her death, this single volume was preserved immaculately, and its contents both shocked and thrilled readers. Detailing a secret love affair, Jane's writings proved untold insights into her mind and heart.

    Rich in historical detail, marvelously researched, and written in a deft and witty style, this book will be irresistible to anyone who loves Jane Austen. It's also perfect for anyone who loves a great story, beautifully told. From the moment you open the pages of The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen, you won't be able to put it down."

    What do you think? Does this look good?

    I absolutely love Jane. She is my very favorite author. So far though, I've always been a bit disappointed in books that were inspired by her rather than written by her.

    I know what you mean, but since she only wrote six novels, one feels the need for more and these type of books help the characters live on.
