A new kind of Jane Austen to enjoy + $10 gift card giveaway!

Do you love reading classic literature? Are you a Jane Austen fan? I have a special kind of book to share about today...

It's the first in a brand series, The Vintage Jane Austen. Christian author Sarah Holman has penned this first volume, Emmeline, which is based on Jane Austen's novel, Emma. I've been given a sneak peek of this new book, Emmeline, and can tell you, fellow readers, it's a REALLY good one! The story transports you not to England in the Georgian era, but to America after the stock market crash of 1929 when the Great Depression is in it's infancy. It's a whole new story... and a truly engrossing way to enjoy Jane Austen all over again.

Now, isn't this one of the loveliest book covers you've ever seen?

Emmeline by Sarah Holman


What if Jane Austen’s Emma lived in America in the year 1930?

The talk of stock market crashes and depression isn’t going to keep Emmeline Wellington down. Born to wealth and privilege, Emmeline wants nothing more than to help her new friend, Catarina, find a husband. Emmeline sets her sights on one of the town’s most eligible bachelors, but nothing seems to go right. Even her friend and neighbor Fredrick Knight seems to question her at every turn.

Will she help Catarina find the man of her dreams? Why is her father acting so strangely? Will the downturn affect her life, despite her best efforts?

Now, for the aforementioned giveaway!!

If you'll just stop by author Sarah Holman's blog, she has the details about a $10 Amazon gift card giveaway. If you pre-order the book (at it's current discounted price), and then let Sarah know, your name is in the drawing.

Stay tuned for my review on this book next week!
