Which Secondary Jane Austen Character Are You?

Sponsored by The Austen Escape by Katherine Reay.

Falling into the past will change their futures forever.

When shy but clever engineer Mary Davies is invited by her estranged childhood friend, Isabel Dwyer, on a holiday in an English manor, she reluctantly agrees in hopes that the trip will shake up her quiet life. But Mary gets more than she bargained for when Isabel loses her memory and fully believes she lives in Jane Austen’s Bath.

The Little Paris Bookshop meets Sense & Sensibility with clever winks to all of Austen’s beloved novels—The Austen Escape is both a universally-relatable look at friendship and a winsome love letter to books.
