MIDNIGHT IN AUSTENLAND by Shannon Hale
That’s right. This is not a YA Book, but I think anyone who is fond of Jane Austen novels will love it. Charlotte Kinders needs a vacation from her life. Her cheating, ex-husband has married the other woman, her two teenagers are driving her crazy and her own successful business is growing so fast she can’t keep up. Her only escape from reality has been reading Jane Austen novels. Then one day a friend tells her about Pembroke Park, an English Guest House that provides a complete “Jane Austen Package” – servants, balls, costumes and gentlemen actors to provide some light romance.
It sounds too good to be true. The problem is that once she gets there Charlotte has a hard time figuring out what is real and what is pretend.
This is actually the second book where author Shannon Hale has taken us to Jane Austen’s world, but it is not part of a series. This book features a whole new cast of characters and a different set of problems from the first book “Austenland”. You will enjoy both.
