Genre: Oh dear. Ummm...maybe we'll say it's a how-to book. :)
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 9
Number of pages: 224
Time period: 1800's advice. Make any sense?
My overall opinion: It was very sweet and super fun! You learn how to: elope to Scotland, avoid dancing with an undesirable partner, write a letter, keep house, pay a morning call, dress, play at cards, and much more! The end of the book also includes a short biography of Jane Austen, a list of her books with a segment about each, a list of films (somewhat out of date, since the book came out in '07), and a short list of sequels and spin-offs, especially in films. A must-read for any Austenite!
