"My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you." If you just heaved a contented sigh at Mr. Darcy's heartfelt words, then you, dear listener, are in good company. Here is a delightful collection of never-before-published stories inspired by Jane Austen.
In Lauren Willig's "A Night at Northanger," a young woman who doesn't believe in ghosts meets a familiar specter; Jane Odiwe's "Waiting" captures the exquisite uncertainty of Persuasion's Wentworth and Anne as they await her family's approval of their betrothal; Adriana Trigiani's "Love and Best Wishes, Aunt Jane" imagines a modern-day Austen giving her niece advice upon her engagement; in Diana Birchall's "Jane Austen's Cat," our beloved Jane tells her nieces "cat tales" based on her novels; Laurie Viera Rigler's "Intolerable Stupidity" finds Mr. Darcy bringing charges against all the writers of Pride and Prejudice sequels, spin-offs, and retellings; in Janet Mullany's "Jane Austen, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!" a teacher at an all-girls school invokes the Beatles to help her students understand Sense and Sensibility; and in Jo Beverley's "Jane and the Mistletoe Kiss," a widow doesn't believe she'll have a second chance at love…until a Miss Austen suggests otherwise.

Very Poor Attempts to be Classy!
Great selection of stories.
Yes, I would provided the friend was a fan of Jane Austen's work and the world of JAFF.
Jane Austen's Nightmare was a laugh out loud tale. I also loved the story where Jane appears as a ghost to the heroine. There's also a story by Pamela Aiden which is a sequel to her trilogy "Fitzwilliam Darcy: Gentleman".
With an audiobook, the narrators usually give you some indication of the voices, and thus the characters, of the different voices. This doesn't always happen when reading.
I had all sorts of reactions listening to these stories. Happy, sad, and as I've said before, laugh out loud.
There's such a variety of tales in this collection that there's something for everyone here. There's nothing to really offend anyone's sensibilties and I'd recommend this book as suitable for all audiences.
