Following Jane Austen Ruined My Life and Mr.
Darcy Broke My Heart, Beth Pattillo returns with her new
novel. Inspired by Sense and Sensibility, The
Dashwood Sisters Tell All follows two modern-day sisters
as they set out on a walking tour of Jane Austen's England
and uncover what might actually be Jane's long-lost diary.
Ellen and Mimi Dodge have never been close, but their
mother's dying wish sends them on a walking tour of
Hampshire, England, that follows in the footsteps of Jane
Austen. Their mother also left them something else: a diary
that belonged to Jane's sister Cassandra.
These pages shed light on the secrets that nearly tore the
Austen sisters apart and inspired one of the greatest love
stories of all time. They also bring Jane to life in a way
that no one has ever seen before: through the eyes of her
sister. As the Dodge sisters embark on their walking tour,
they too are drawn together in ways they never expected.
They also discover that Cassandra's diary holds secrets, and
someone doesn't want Ellen and Mimi to discover the truth.
As they stumble on their way toward love, the women learn
how Jane and Cassandra Austen inspired the original Marianne
and Elinor Dashwood and come to realize that despite their
very different personalities, they are a vital part of each
other's happy endings.

Re: Dashwood Sisters Tell All
These books sound wonderful - and I would love to be a winner. But even if I don't win, I plan to get the books to read. Best of luck with them. Nancy
