A Jane Austen Devotional
published by Thomas Nelson
available January 10, 2012
A must have if you are a lover of Jane Austen and Jesus Christ. This book is a wonderful blend of tidbits from Jane's books and Biblical passages. The lessons put forth are related to Ms. Austen's characters with a perfect blending of her writings and those from the scriptures.
I received this book as a NetGalley egalley, but I will purchase as soon as available, this is one I want to keep with me at all times.
