To the modern woman, Jane Austen has become synonymous with happily-ever-after. From her books we can glean relationship advice that still works today, but Austen’s life offers us so much more wisdom than just that pertaining to love. She actually never married, and seems to have had a full, happy life. She endured many painful circumstances with grace and humor, the worst being the mysterious illness that took her life at 41.


Austen’s heroines are always women of substance - or character. They’re far from perfect, but they’re guided by an inner strength that allows them to recognize their faults and correct their mistakes. And we may be surprised to find that Austen’s novels are not so much about hopeless romanticism as they are about sensible romanticism - a timely corrective in a culture where we’re all obsessed with finding The One. (What would Jane think about The One? She would probably disagree.) This book will cover topics ranging from how to be brave and follow your dreams (persist); how to be a woman of substance (when the right thing hurts, do it anyway); love, sex, and finding a good man (build love on the foundation of esteem); recovering from a broken heart (don't feed the pain); money and fame; friends and family; and much more.
