What the readers have to say:
Is there anything as sumptuous as the first reading of a Jane Austen novel?! Cast your mind back; it’s truly wonderful. Getting the letters each week made me carve a little more time out of each day to indulge in reading than I normally do. Glorious! Xandra very cleverly highlights certain aspects of the story and characters most relevant to a heroine in training.” – Sara S.
Each letter is carefully crafted with words that are wise and yet so relatable. It’s quite like having tea with Jane Austen herself.” – Erin R.
Letters from Austen is a fun way of deepening your understanding of Austen’s novels. Xandra’s thoughts certainly helped me to place some of the characters and their relationships, and each letter gave me something new to consider as I worked my way through the novel.” – Amy Lord (Ten Penny Dreams)
I am a first time Jane Austen reader and I am now hooked! Northanger Abbey was easier to understand than I thought, thanks to Xandra’s weekly letters, which helped me get acquainted with the characters and their relationships. On to Sense and Sensibility!” – Susan B.
