The Dashwood Sisters Tell All by Beth Pattillo
Ellen and Mimi named by their mother after Elinor and Marianne Dashwood of Sense and Sensibility, unfortunately these sisters don’t get along that well.
But on the death of their Mother, they find she had plans in place to send them both off on a quest together.
She had been a devoted Jane Austen fan and sent the sisters off on a Jane Austen pilgrimage to decide where to leave her ashes.
They have a few surprises on their arrival in Hampshire.
Not least of all the long lost love of Ellen’s life turning up on the same walking tour.
There is drama and comedy as they make their way through the lanes and hedgerows of Hampshire, visiting Chawton and ending their tour in Winchester.
Are there secret Austen artifacts? Do the girls get their men? Are the formidables on the case?
Grab a copy and if you enjoyed Jane Austen Ruined My Life and Mr Darcy Broke My Heart, you are going to love this.
