My favorite author is Jane Austen, and typically I do not read the modern stories that are connected to her works. You just cannot improve classic literature! :) However, I keep seeing Jane of Austin by Hillary Manton Lodge, so I finally decided to pick up a copy. I do love the the line on the front cover: A Novel of Sweet Tea and Sensibility. And I am excited to start reading this novel, but for now, I will just include the first line instead of my review.
Do you enjoy reading modern works that continue where a classic author left off in their story? Or do you prefer to stick with the classic tale? Let me know in the comments below along with any book suggestions you might have.
Grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line!
Today I am going to post a line from:
Jane of Austin
by Hillary Manton Lodge
And the fist line is...
"You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me."
San Francisco, CA
"'So you see,' Jonathan explained, 'what you've been paying as a lease for your little tea shop--it's well beneath market value.'"
Happy reading and happy Friday!
