JANE AUSTIN GUIDE TO LIFE

Author: SMITH, LORI

Description: Jane Austen has become our patron saint of romance, our goddess of happy endings. Her 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. But if she could give us advice about life and love, what would she tell us? What would she make of RSVP.com.au, reality shows like The Farmer wants a Wife, or of our obsession with finding The One? Austen's stories give us relationship advice that still works today, but her life offers us so much more wisdom than just that pertaining to love. In our fame-obsessed culture, it's refreshing to think that Austen preferred to remain anonymous. Ironically, Jane Austen-master of love stories-never married and can teach us something about being single. She also endured many painful circumstances and managed them with grace and humour. This book covers topics ranging from how to be brave and follow your dreams (persist); love, sex and finding a good man (build love no the foundation of esteem); recovering from a broken heart (don't feed the pain); money and fame; friends and family; and much more.
