What a treat! All six Real Reads Jane Austen titles in a smart, tidy box. Now you can be the best-read Austen fan on the block with the most enjoyment and the least effort.
The box set contains: Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma, Norhnager Abbey, Persuasion and Mansfield Park.
Find out why Elizabeth says no to Darcy, how Marianne and Elinor come to understand the balance between sense and sensibility, all about Emma’s scheming and Catherine’s gothic fantasies, how Anne is persuaded against her better judgement, and how Fanny overcomes her rejections at Mansfield Park.
