I’ve often desired to hop across the pond to England just to go into the English countryside and visit the places which Austen speaks of in her novels and places where Jane herself lived. I have loved many authors, but none so much as our dear Jane.
Who is to say what it is about her that speaks to us. Her novels are like old friends that bring us comfort or happiness when we need it most. They are timeless treasures which each of us holds onto. This enchantment is what spurs our desire to see the places Jane lived and those she spoke about in her novels.
Pride and Prejudice is 200 years old! Who knew age could look so good, but it does. Take a tour through Jane Austen’s English Countryside with Smithsonian Magazine. Read the article by Nina Fedrizzi here.
I hope you enjoy your journey.
