Waiting on Wednesday (28)

This week I'm waiting on...

I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend: A Secret Diary by Cora Harrison

"When shy Jenny Cooper goes to stay with her cousin Jane Austen, she knows nothing of the world of beautiful dresses, dances, secrets, gossip, and romance that Jane inhabits. At fifteen, Jane is already a sharp observer of the customs of courtship. So when Jenny falls utterly in love with Captain Thomas Williams, who better than Jane to help her win the heart of this dashing man?

But is that even possible? After all, Jenny’s been harboring a most desperate secret. Should it become known, it would bring scandal not only to her, but also to the wonderful Austen family. What’s a poor orphan girl to do?" Summary Courtesy of Amazon

This sounds great, I love historical fiction!

Release date: October 12, 2010

  1. I think this sounds fab too. I'm waiting to read some reviews before I set my heart on buying it though. I love the US cover. The UK one is a little boring.

  3. I've seen the UK copy of this in stores here and the cover is so different! Not sure which one I prefer, because they look so different you'd expect them to be two completely different types of book.

  10. I love historical fiction and Jane Austen. This may be good, though there are so many Jane Austen spin-offs.
