Jane is a young New Yorker who can never seem to find the right man - perhaps because of her secret infatuation with Mr Darcy, as played by Colin Firth. But when a wealthy relative bequeaths her a trip to an English resort catering to Austen fanatics, Jane's fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman suddenly become more real than she ever could have imagined. Will total immersion in a fake Austenland be enough to make Jane kick the Austen obsession for good, or could all her dreams actually culminate in a Mr Darcy of her own?
In this addictive, charming and compassionate story, Shannon Hale brings out the Jane Austen addict in all of us.
