An overpowering happiness

“Such a letter was not to be soon recovered from. . . . Every moment rather brought fresh agitation.  It was an overpowering happiness.”

    I got your book for my birthday & loved it. After reading it, I proceeded to buy your other book & all the Austen books I didn’t own. Persuasion was the first book I read – it was great. Love the quote!

  2. I love this blog! Jane’s writing is so enjoyable in bits and pieces . . . sometimes when wading through an entire book, you miss the very best gems. Then when you go back through the book again (because really, it won’t do to read them all less than twice), you can enjoy them all the more!
    I can’t wait to read your book!!!
