The Austen Escape by Katherine Reay
The Austen Escape by Katherine Reay published by Thomas Nelson is a great book if you are a Jane Austen's estimator.
Everything starts with Mary, the protagonist of this story. She is an engineer and her life is very good, productive. She is surrounded by great collaborators and friends.
She lives a conflictual relationship with Isabel her childhood friend for some various different reasons. Her dad one of these main ones although it will be her dad who will ask her of speaking again with her for a clarification.
One day Isabel offers her a vacation of two weeks in a big mansion in England. Mary answers her positively.
Mary won't be alone in this trip. She will share these two weeks with Isabel and their common past.
There is to add that Mary is fascinated by Jane Austen because her mother was a great Jane Austen's estimator, and so she always kept religiously well the books by Austen that her mother treasured so much.
With the time she found this author interesting and captivating. She read and re-read these books a lot of times and Austen became an author who permitted her to "read" better people and situations.
Maybe it is true: if you read Jane Austen a first read can't let you understand all the messages she wanted to transmit.
I found the book quick, I absolutely adore the cover, because it gives completely the idea of the tale you will read and the book is written according to my point of view in the perfect Jane Austen's atmosphere.
I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
