“On the train to Bath, I opened my copy of Jane Austen’s letters and looked through the book, searching for any clues about Jack Smith.

Surely some inkling of her relationship with him remained, although I was beginning to suspect that Cassandra’s caretaking of her sister’s legacy had been far more thorough than anyone had dreamed. “

From:

Jane Austen Ruined My Life by Beth Patillo

Jane Austen Ruined My Life

“He dragged a shredded tarp to the top floor of the house and climbed in the fiberglass garden tub sitting unplumbed in the master bedroom.

He made a nest and slipped into dreams.”

  1. Those are great teasers. I’ve been curious about “Jane Austen Ruined My Life” – may have to put that one on my TBR list.

  2. The Jane Austen book is so much fun. I started reading thing morning and I’m already half way through it. I would have read it straight through except that I had to go in to work. =p Definately pick it up, its a good read.

  3. I want to read this one! Great teasers.

  4. Cassandra did do a number on her sisters legacy!

  5. What a great title for a book and wonderful teasers. Thanks for sharing ~ here is mine

    I’m adding Jane Austen Ruined My life to my to-read list 🙂

  7. You found one of my favorite scenes! What fun.

    Though I generally steer clear of dreams in writing fiction, this excerpt foreshadows a truly surreal meeting between Gary Gray and Dog. It gives me chills even though I wrote it!

    🙂

    Thanks!
