AUSTENLAND by Shannon HaleHave you ever wished that you could go back in time? Have you ever desired just one afternoon in ball gowns, shawls, bonnets and slippers? Have you ever watched Pride and Prejudice, with Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy and wished you could have been born in 1806, in Regency Era England? I know I have and so discovering Shannon Hale's book, AUSTENLAND was a TREAT.
I really loved it! Really. I started it feeling silly, burying it at the bottom of my library checkout pile,going through the self-check out line, with the hope that the librarian wouldn't see how silly and ridiculous I could be. But I am ashamed no more. Witty,origional, captivating and fun... Hale created a great modern day twist on Ms. Austen that left me smiling and wishing there really was an AUSTENLAND!!!
