Publisher Description

“Know your own happiness. You want nothing but patience - or give it a more fascinating name, call it hope.” 
― Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility

Just a few years after their father’s business scandal shatters their lives, Jane and Celia Woodward find themselves forced out of their San Francisco tea shop. The last thing Jane wants is to leave their beloved shop on Valencia Street, but when Celia insists on a move to Austin, Texas, the sisters pack up their kid sister Margot and Jane’s tea plants, determined to start over yet again.

But life in Austin isn’t all sweet tea and breakfast tacos. Their unusual living situation is challenging and unspoken words begin to fester between Jane and Celia. When Jane meets and falls for up-and-coming musician Sean Willis, the chasm grows deeper.

While Sean seems to charm everyone in his path, one person is immune – retired Marine Captain Callum Beckett. Callum never meant to leave the military, but the twin losses of his father and his left leg have returned him to the place he least expected—Texas. 

In this modern spin on the Austen classic, Sense and Sensibility, the Woodward sisters must contend with new ingredients in unfamiliar kitchens, a dash of heartbreak, and the fragile hope that maybe home isn't so far away.

SENSATIONAL!!

I've read a few modern takes on the classics and some were good, some were way too modern for my personal tastes and only a few were exceptional. Jane of Austin is one such exception!! From the first word to the last it The characters are rich and believable. You want to join in and interact with the three sisters. You want to help them when their hearts are broken (plenty of that), comfort them when they uproot and move from their quaint Tea Shop in San Francisco to re-establish their lives in Austin, TX, yell through the book at them to realize what's going on around them so they can make wise decisions with their business choices, friend
