Miss Jane A Novel Book Description :

Longlisted for the National Book Award and a Washington Post Best Book of the Year "Gorgeous…A writer of profound emotional depths." —New York Times Book Review Since his award-winning debut collection of stories, Last Days of the Dog-Men, Brad Watson has been expanding the literary traditions of the South in work as melancholy, witty, strange, and lovely as any in America. Drawing on the true story of his great-aunt, he explores the life of Miss Jane Chisolm, born in rural, early-twentieth-century Mississippi with a genital birth defect that excludes her from the roles traditional for a woman of her time and place and frees her to live her life as she pleases. With irrepressible vitality and generosity of spirit, Miss Jane mesmerizes those around her, exerting an unearthly fascination that lives beyond her still.

The Many Reflections of Miss Jane Deming Book Description :

High-spirited young Jane is excited to be part of Mr. Mercer’s plan to bring Civil War widows and orphans to Washington Territory—but life out west isn’t at all what she expects in this novel that’s perfect for fans of Avi and Little House on the Prairie. Washington Territory is just the place for men of broad mind and sturdy constitution—and girls too, Jane figures, or Mr. Mercer wouldn’t have allowed her to come on his expedition to bring unmarried girls and Civil War widows out west. Jane’s constitution is sturdy enough. She’s been taking care of her baby brother ever since Papa was killed in the war and her young stepmother had to start working long days at the mill. The problem, she fears, is her mind. It might not be suitably broad because she had to leave school to take care of little Jer. Still, a new life awaits in Washington Territory, and Jane plans to make the best of it. Except Seattle doesn’t turn out to be quite as advertised. In this rough-and-tumble frontier town, Jane is going to need every bit of that broad mind and sturdy constitution—not to mention a good sense of humor and a stubborn streak a mile wide.

The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman Book Description :

"This is a novel in the guise of the tape-recorded recollections of a black woman who has lived 110 years, who has been both a slave and a witness to the black militancy of the 1960's. In this woman Ernest Gaines has created a legendary figure, a woman equipped to stand beside William Faulkner's Dilsey in The Sound And The Fury." Miss Jane Pittman, like Dilsey, has 'endured,' has seen almost everything and foretold the rest. Gaines' novel brings to mind other great works The Odyssey for the way his heroine's travels manage to summarize the American history of her race, and Huckleberry Finn for the clarity of her voice, for her rare capacity to sort through the mess of years and things to find the one true story in it all." -- Geoffrey Wolff, Newsweek. "Stunning. I know of no black novel about the South that excludes quite the same refreshing mix of wit and wrath, imagination and indignation, misery and poetry. And I can recall no more memorable female character in Southern fiction since Lena of Faulkner's Light In August than Miss Jane Pittman." -- Josh Greenfeld, Life

The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen Book Description :

Marry for Love, Austen Said-Did She? Tradition holds that Jane Austen lived a quiet single life. But what if she wed a man equal to her intelligence, character, and passion-and the family covered it up? "The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen" resolves the mystery of Austen's life during the "missing years" of her twenties: -Why the enduring rumors of a lost love or tragic affair? -Why, afterward, did the vivacious Jane put on the "garb of middle age" and shut herself away to write her books? -Why, upon her death, did her beloved sister destroy her letters and journals from this period? An accurate rendering of her life and tumultuous times, The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen fills in the blanks of Austen's "lost years" with a riveting love story that also engages the protagonist in the most important and the dramatic events of the Regency era. Praise for the trilogy: 'A skillful portrayal of an early nineteenth-century icon takes this historical romance on an imaginative journey of the soul. ... These fascinating people step off the pages in lifelike form.' -Foreword CLARION Reviews, 4 stars 'Hemingway ... captures the energy of the times, while also writing with the irony and sly humor of Austen herself. ... Truly a worthy addition to the Jane Austen legacy.' -Blueink Starred Review 'Enjoyable ... an imaginative, well-researched series.' -Kirkus Reviews

The Mysterious Death of Miss Jane Austen Book Description :

"Where would I begin to explain it all...?" Twenty-six years have passed since the death of Jane Austen. Armed with a lock of Austen's hair as perhaps her best clue, Anne Sharp, former governess to the Austen family and Jane's close friend, has decided at last to tell her story-a story of family intrigues, shocking secrets, forbidden loves, and maybe even murder... Perfect for fans of Death Comes to Pemberley, upon its publication in the UK, Lindsay Ashford's fictional interpretation of the few facts surrounding Jane Austen's mysterious death sparked an international debate and uproar. None of the medical theories offer a satisfactory explanation of Jane Austen's early demise at the age of forty-one. Could it be that what everyone has assumed was a death by natural causes was actually more sinister? Lindsay Ashford's vivid novel delves deep into Austen's world and puts forth a shocking suggestion-was someone out to silence her?
