Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict by Laurie Viera Rigler, 293 pages
But she's not herself. She's no longer blonde, short and busty. Now she's got brown hair and a willowy figure. Everyone around her calls her Jane Mansfield, and Jane is a woman living a life very much like the life portrayed by Jane Austen's heroines. Sure it's great to read Jane Austen, but to live it? Courtney's not so sure. Chamber pots, bleeding of ill humors, showers don't exist, baths are rare and women exist to marry and have children.
A fun, light summer read for even those of us who aren't quite addicts, but never turn down a good Jane Austen story.
