Book review: of Suit and Suitability by Kelsey Bryant

What would it be like to see Elizabeth Bennet in 1930’s clothes? What if Emma Woodhouse was the daughter of a car dealership owner? What if Marianne Dashwood was seeking to become a movie star in the golden age of film? The Vintage Jane Austen series explores the world of Jane Austen, set in 1930’s America. Five authors took on Jane Austen’s five most popular novels and retold them set in the depression era, remaining faithful to the original plots. As an extra bonus to the series, there is a collection of short stories that were inspired by Jane Austen. Which of these books do you most want to read?

Suit and Suitability by Kelsey Bryant (Sense and Sensibility): Canton, Ohio, 1935. Ellen and Marion Dashiell’s world crumbles when their father is sent to prison. Forced to relocate to a small town, what is left of their family faces a new reality where survival overshadows dreams. Sensible Ellen, struggling to hold the family together, is parted from the man she’s just learning to love, while headstrong Marion fears she will never be the actress she aspires to be. When a dashing hero enters the scene, things only grow more complicated. But could a third man hold the key to the restoration and happiness of the Dashiell family?

Genre: Vintage Fiction

My Rating: 5 Stars.

Recommendation: Anyone.

My favorite character is: Ellen Dashiell who is a strong, sensible, and serious kind of girl. She is quiet and sometimes funny.

My Verse for Proverbs 30:25 The ants are a people not strong, yet they provide their food in the summer;

I don’t really like that Marion is an actress but I liked the book a lot.

received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review and the thoughts are my own.
