VINTAGE JANE AUSTEN // Blog Tour & Giveaway


GREETINGS, MY FAIR DRAGONS! Today, I'm thrilled to present the Vintage Jane Austen series, as my final blog tour post for the week! Retellings are always a favorite of mine, as are Austen adaptations; combine those two with the 1930s, and you get six marvelous books, the final an anthology! I can't wait to read them, myself! 😁

ABOUT THE BOOKS


What would it be like to see Elizabeth Bennet in 1930s clothes? What if Emma Woodhouse was the daughter of a car dealership owner? What if Marianne Dashwood was seeking to become a movie star in the golden age of film? The Vintage Jane Austen series explores the world of Jane Austen, set in 1930s America. Five authors took on Jane Austen's five most popular novels and retold them set in the depression era, remaining faithful to the original plots. As an extra bonus to the series, there is a collection of short stories that were inspired by Jane Austen. Which of these books do you most want to read?

BOOK ONE: EMMELINE BY SARAH HOLMAN


Retelling Emma

The talk of stock market crashes and depression isn't going to keep Emmeline Wellington down. Born to wealth and privilege, Emmeline wants nothing more than to help her new friend, Catarina, find a husband. Emmeline sets her sights on one of the town's most eligible bachelors, but nothing seems to go right. Even her friend and neighbor Fredrick Knight seems to question her at every turn.



BOOK TWO: SUIT & SUITABILITY BY KELSEY BRYANT


Retelling Sense & Sensibility

Canton, Ohio, 1935. Ellen and Marion Dashiell's world crumbles when their father is sent to prison. Forced to relocate to a small town, what is left of their family faces a new reality where survival overshadows dreams. Sensible Ellen, struggling to hold the family together, is parted from the man she's just learning to love, while headstrong Marion fears she will never be the actress she aspires to be. When a dashing hero enters the scene, things only grow more complicated. But could a third man hold the key to the restoration and happiness of the Dashiell family?



BOOK THREE: BELLEVERE HOUSE BY SARAH SCHEELE


Retelling Mansfield Park

It's March, 1937, and Faye Powell couldn't be happier. After moving to live with her uncle, a wealthy banker, she's fallen into the swing of life with his exuberant children -- including Ed. The one she'll never admit she's in love with. But she hadn't reckoned on the swanky Carters getting mixed up in that vow. Ed seems to be falling for charming, sweet Helene Carter. And when Faye's cousin BeBe trusts her with a secret about Horace Carter, Faye is in over her head. Will she betray the confidence BeBe's given her? Will she lose Ed to Helene?

  2. I'm not a huge Jane Austin fan, but these seem really good! I haven't read Sense and Sensibility, but I have watched Pride and Prejudice. P&P is actually a pretty good movie.
