I'm giving away two books to Jane Austen fans!!!


Synopsis:

Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma...these titles conjure up a romantic world of rolling English countrysides, elegant balls, noble gentlemen, and headstrong gentlemen's daughters. But how much do we know about the woman who immortalized those times and names like Mr. Darcy and Miss Elizabeth Bennett? Growing up in a clergyman's home gave Jane Austen opportunities to watch human nature at its best--and worst. Drawing from historical sources as well as her own keen imagination, Christy Award-winner Nancy Moser transports readers inside the life and times of the literary world's most beloved heroine. Known for her moving and unique Mozart's Sister, Nancy Moser brings to life the mind and wit of Jane Austen--the loves, disappointments, and victories that shaped the novels that have remained popular for nearly two hundred years.

About the author:

Nancy Moser is the best-selling author of sixteen novels and three books of inspirational humor including Mozart's Sister, the Christy-award winning, Time Lottery, The Seat Beside Me, as well as the Sister Circle series coauthored with Campus Crusade co-founder, Vonette Bright.



Synopsis:

In a remote Hertfordshire village, far off the good coach roads of George III's England, a country squire of no great means must marry off his five vivacious daughters. At the heart of this all-consuming enterprise are his headstrong second daughter Elizabeth Bennet and her aristocratic suitor Fitzwilliam Darcy—two lovers whose pride must be humbled and prejudice dissolved before the novel can come to its splendid conclusion.

A tour de force of wit and sparkling dialogue, Pride and Prejudice is also a sumptuously detailed picture of contemporary society, which, in its exploration of manner and motives, has a great deal to say about the society of today. Austen's best-loved novel is a memorable story about the power of reason, and above all about the strange dynamics of human relationships and emotions.

The handsome volumes in The Collectors Library present great works of world literature in a handy hardback format. Printed on high-quality paper and bound in real cloth, each complete and unabridged volume has a specially commissioned afterword, brief biography of the author and a further-reading list. This easily accessible series offers readers the perfect opportunity to discover, or rediscover, some of the world's most endearing literary works.

At the turn of eighteenth-century England, spirited Elizabeth Bennet copes with the suit of the snobbish Mr. Darcy while trying to sort out the romantic entanglements of two of her sisters, sweet and beautiful Jane and scatterbrained Lydia.

Biography

Jane Austen's delightful, carefully wrought novels of manners remain surprisingly relevant, nearly 200 years after they were first published. Her novels -- Pride and Prejudice and Emma among them -- are those rare books that offer us a glimpse at the mores of a specific period while addressing the complexities of love, honor, and responsibility that still intrigue us today.

Michelle,
I just wanted to say that Just Jane is wonderful! Don't enter me in the drawing, I just wanted to gush about how much I loved this book. And Pride and Prejudice is my all-time favorite. Just Jane encouraged me as a writer more than anything I've ever read. I wanted to send Nancy Moser a fan letter but couldn't find her web address. :-) So I hope she reads this.

Okay, I HAVE to enter this, as my wife and daughter is holding this laptop hostage unless they win. I am not kidding. If I don't win my wife may send a portion of my mousepad cut off for evidence. Please, I have only one Motherboard to give to my ladies addiction to Austen. What a wonderful Christmas Present for them, and freedom for my Dell. I hope to hear from you soon. I will let you know the drop-off spot.
