Review: Austenland by Shannon Hale

For all you Austen-lovers out there here's a fun, quick read that is guaranteed to leave you with a smile.  In Austenland, Hale introduces readers to thirty-something Jane who cannot find her very own Mr. Darcy.  Jane knows that Darcy is not a real man, but Jane cannot help waiting for her dream man.  Then she inherits a dream vacation from an elderly great-aunt which sends her to England and straight into the ultimate Austen fantasy.  Can fantasy become reality?  Read to find out!

Fast-paced and witty, Hale has given readers a strong, intelligent heroine who refuses to settle for less than true love.
