Lost in Austen

Last week I watched Lost in Austen with my daughter. I loved the show. If you haven’t heard about it, it’s a mini series that ran in the UK first and is now running in the US on some cable channels. It’s also available on DVD. The premise of the series is a modern woman, Amanda Price, is thrust into 19th century England, right into the Pride & Prejudice novel. Essentially, she switches placed with Elizabeth Bennet. Of course with Elizabeth missing, the plot seems to go slightly awry and Amanda desperately tries to get things back on course.

It was really a fun and very entertaining show. The costumes and sets were just gorgeous. If you are a fan of Austen or even that time in history, this is definitely a show not to miss.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

I'd love to tape something like that and watch it at my leisure.
What leisure? It's a dream.

I watched on PBS and loved it-Mr. darcy is brooding and morose, but she's right he's not Colin Firth.
