Can't Wait Wednesday: The Jane Austen Society

Can't Wait Wednesday is hosted by Wishful Endings and helps us spotlight upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating!

The Jane Austen Society by Natalie Jenner
Pub. Date: May 26, 2020



Goodreads says, "Just after the Second World War, in the small English village of Chawton, an unusual but like-minded group of people band together to attempt something remarkable  One hundred and fifty years ago, Chawton was the last home of Jane Austen, one of England's finest novelists. Now it's home to her remaining heirs and a diminishing estate. With the last bit of Austen's legacy threatened, a group of disparate individuals come together to preserve both Jane Austen's home and her legacy. These people—a laborer, a young widow, the local doctor, and a movie star, among others—could not be more different and yet they are united in their love for the works and words of Austen. As each of them endures their own quiet struggle with loss and trauma, some from the recent war, others from more distant tragedies, they come together to create the Jane Austen Society.  A powerful and moving novel that explores the tragedies and triumphs of life, both small and large, and the universal humanity in us all, The Jane Austen Society is destined to resonate with readers for years to come."

Doesn't this sound good? I love all things Jane, so this sounds like a must-read for me. Plus, I have visited Jane's house in Chawton and explored the village - it's adorable!  What do you guys think?
