Jane Austen’s Birthday Giveaway #3: A Jane Austen Christmas by Carlo DeVito



We have two copies of A Jane Austen Christmas by Carlo DeVito

From the publisher:

Filled with the remarkable wit and insight of one of the world’s most cherished authors, A Jane Austen Christmas gives readers insight into Austen’s life through little-known stories about how she and her family celebrated the treasured holiday season.

Carlo DeVito provides an intimate portrait of Austen’s most cherished Christmas memories with her family: from the gift of her first writing desk, to her first love and heartbreak, to her brewing mead and beer in time for the holidays. Along the way readers will spend a holiday in the Austen house, celebrate Jane’s birthday, meet the inspiration for more than a dozen characters, attend the Christmastide series of balls, and learn how to make family’s favorite recipes and dedicate a novel to the Prince Regent. Remarkably fresh and supremely entertaining, A Jane Austen Christmas brings Austen’s world to life as never before.

Incidentally, the Editrix wrote the introduction! The publisher has kindly provided two copies for a giveaway.

    I’ve read all of her novels, her letters and watched all movie versions of the novels. I’m now obsessed with all things British, especially during the more genteel times. I enjoy the wit and the descriptions of the characters, which definitely relate to today’s world also. It’s all about human relations and Jane Austen knew how to tell a great story about human relations that we can all relate to today. I’d love to have this book.
