Laura's Reviews will enjoy the book, and it gives me great pleasure to bestow it upon someone who is sure to appreciate it. Though this giveaway failed to garner enthusiasm, I do want to reiterate what I said in my review of the book (read it here), and that is that the story is an excellent read, even though a somewhat odd Sense and Sensibility modernization. I do have a backlog of further reviews to write, as well as more giveaways to look forward to, but I am afraid that my spare time this week has been dominate by my efforts to read all the stories entered in the Jane Austen Made Me Do It Short Story Contest. Several are simply marvelous (making me feel rather bashful about my own modest entry, entitled "Henry and Maria"), and I urge you all to devour as many as you can, as well as vote for your favorites, before the contest ends on February 28th. I think I will indulge myself right now by reading another before continuing with the work I am supposed to be doing. Congratulations Laura! You'll hear from me shortly.
