by Shannon Hale

Published 2007

This novel, set in present day, follows the life of Jane Hayes, an average American woman with a secret obsession with Mr. Darcy.  Through a series of events, Jane is given a trip to England to spend three weeks in Austenland–and Jane Austen-era resort where she is able to wear Regency clothes and spends her days embroidering and wandering through the gardens.

This book is incredibly playful and fun, and I would definitely recommend it for anyone who has ever had a crush on Mr. Darcy.  ;-)
