Jane is a young New York woman who can never seem to find the right man--perhaps because of her secret obsession with Mr. Darcy, as played by Colin Firth in the BBC adaptation of `Pride and Prejudice.` When a wealthy relative bequeaths her a trip to an English resort catering to Austen-obsessed women, however, Jane's fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman suddenly become more real than she ever could have imagined. Is this total immersion in a fake Austenland enough to make Jane kick the Austen obsession for good, or could all her dreams actually culminate in a Mr. Darcy of her own?Don't miss Shannon Hale's next book, `Midnight in Austenland,` a mystery set at Pemberly available in February, 2012.

Review quote

Praise for `The Goose Girl` and Shannon Hale: ` In layer upon layer of detail a beautiful coming-of-age story emerges, a tale about learning to rescue yourself rather than falling accidentally into happily-ever-after. Hale uncovers her theme patiently and without preaching, focusing not on the moral but on the adventures her heroine must face in order to learn the lessons herself.` -- `New York Times Book Review``` ` Shannon Hale is already, after only a few books, one of our best writers of fantasy. She is also one of those rare storytellers who can bring a jaded old reviewer like me to well-earned tears.` -- Orson Scott Card ` I was completely beguiled...Hale's writing is beautiful, with a vivid eye for detail.` -- Justine Picardie, `Telegraph ```
