Hi Readers! Do any of you remember May Day as the
day we used to run around the neighborhood and put
little bouquets of flowers on the neighbor's
doorsteps, ring the bell, and run away? I do! I
also remember picking their flowers to offer back
to them! ha!
Well, I may be too old to get away with picking my
neighbor's flowers and have them think it's cute,
but something about spring makes me feel more alive
after a long, cold winter, and I go in search of a
spirited heroine to read about. Since Jane Austen
has always come through for me, this month is Jane
Austen Month in my publishing library! If you enjoy
Jane Austen classics, you may find these to be a
fun twist. So grab a book and a hammock and come
along for a new twist on an old classic....
