Jelinas’ #CBR4 Review #21: George Knightley, Esquire, Book One: Charity Envieth Not by Barbara Cornthwaite

charity envieth not

Full disclosure: The author of this book is a friend of mine. I read the book as it was being written and provided feedback. I am thanked on the flyleaf.

But, with that said, I thoroughly enjoyed Charity Envieth Not, a retelling of Jane Austen’s Emma from Knightley’s point of view. It’s a well-researched, well-written book.

Since you’re not likely to find it at your local library, you can buy it on Amazon. Or e-mail me, and I might let you borrow my copy.

Jelinas’ #CBR4 Review #18: Emma by Jane Austen

Mmm, Northam.

Emma is my favorite of Jane Austen’s books. Some people complain that she’s spoiled, arrogant, and selfish, but that’s what makes Austen’s magic all the more impressive: she makes you like an unlikeable character.
