The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen

release date: Feb 09, 2018
The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen
Marry for Love, Austen Said-Did She? Tradition holds that Jane Austen lived a quiet single life. But what if she wed a man equal to her intelligence, character, and passion-and the family covered it up? "The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen" resolves the mystery of Austen''s life during the "missing years" of her twenties: -Why the enduring rumors of a lost love or tragic affair? -Why, afterward, did the vivacious Jane put on the "garb of middle age" and shut herself away to write her books? -Why, upon her death, did her beloved sister destroy her letters and journals from this period? An accurate rendering of her life and tumultuous times, The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen fills in the blanks of Austen''s "lost years" with a riveting love story that also engages the protagonist in the most important and the dramatic events of the Regency era. Praise for the trilogy: ''A skillful portrayal of an early nineteenth-century icon takes this historical romance on an imaginative journey of the soul. ... These fascinating people step off the pages in lifelike form.'' -Foreword CLARION Reviews, 4 stars ''Hemingway ... captures the energy of the times, while also writing with the irony and sly humor of Austen herself. ... Truly a worthy addition to the Jane Austen legacy.'' -Blueink Starred Review ''Enjoyable ... an imaginative, well-researched series.'' -Kirkus Reviews

I''ve generally witnessed situations when companies were at their worst, and can''t help but think that if they were `happy companies'' things might have been less stressful. What Happy Companies Know is filled with brilliant and original ideas that can improve the health of any company-big or small. The executive health and business culture principles are applicable to all areas of labor relations. This book provides the tools necessary to assist companies in the planning and organization essential for profitable and positive negotiations."---W.J. Usery, Jr., former U.S. Secretary of Labor "The authors'' central concept that `happiness'' is not a result, but rather the cause of success, will change basic business thinking.

This book should be on the reading list of every executive and every board member of every type of organization."---Jonathan Estrin, executive vice president, American Film Institute "Filled with practical ways to master `the softer side'' of business, this guide will help employers effectively implement change and produce more cooperative, innovative, and dedicated employees...Thanks to the authors'' thorough research and accessible style, readers will understand not just how to improve their companies, but why it''s necessary.
