Where has Jane Austen taken you?

Jane Austen took me back to England, a place I call home as well since I lived there for a entire school year in 1991. Yes. I am that old. Or young. If you are a Janeite you will say young because there is no limit of age for the flights of fancy you take when you decide to follow the Janeite crowd. Many wonderful things happened to me but I cannot share them all at once. Today I want to share a delightful video my friends made for me all the way from England because I could not be there with them. One of them I have not even met in person. That is what Jane does to people. She connects us in such a deep level you are best friends with someone you never even met.

I met Cassandra Grafton online (on Facebook) because I just had to tell her how much I loved her trilogy based on Pride & Prejudice – A Fair Prospect. Once we started talking we never stopped. I don’t know how long we have been friends but I am sure Facebook will let me know one of these days. LOL. I eventually met her in person in a wonderful, however, hectic, trip to England last year and now she has published a new book with Ada Bright. I wish I could go back to Bath less than a year later to be present at the book launch but life happens. So this is what they did. Arent’t they adorable?

  2. What happened to me? I went to the Jane Austen Festival in Louisville KY with two women I met on Facebook. Bought 2 regency gowns (day and ball). Bought a bonnet! Danced all but two dances at the Ball. Discovered your blog and won a book!
