Winner of the Book Giveaway: Dangerous To Know

And the winner of Tasha Alexander's Dangerous to Know is ... Ruth, from Book Talk and More. Please email your mailing address to me at janeaustensworld -at- gee-mail*.*com. Some of my favorite answers to the question tell us which mystery about Jane Austen's life you'd like to solve are: 

  • I would love to know what Jane's plans were for "The Watsons"
  • I would like to know more about Jane's relationship with her elder sister, Cassandra
  • I'd like to know Jane in her later years, particularly during the decline of her health. How did she keep going?

  • I would love to know more about her quiet life in general. I still secretly hope that one day someone in England will find some missing letter or whatever written by Jane.
  • To know what Jane Austen had in mind for both The Watsons and Sanditon would really be interesting to me.
  • I would like to know where she got her tenacity and boldness for such free thought and to become a writer. I guess what her family life was like to form the person of Jane Austen.

Mostly, readers wanted to know about her "true love" and more about her true relationship with Tom Lefroy.

Thank you all for participating!

Perhaps Jane's true love was writing and if she had married her sweetheart maybe we would have been denied her legacy.
