For more than two hundred years, Jane Austen and her novels have charmed readers from around the world. While much has been written about her fascinating life, less is known about Jane’s spiritual side. In this beautiful 31-day devotional, Miss Austen’s faith comes to life through her exquisite prayers, touching biographical anecdotes, and illuminating scenes from her novels. Each reading also includes a thematically appropriate Scripture and a prayer inspired by Jane’s petitions.
May this journey into Jane Austen’s life of faith and prayer ignite and deepen your own relationship with the Father who loves you.
ABOUT THE BOOK:

Pour a hot cup of tea and get to know the deeply spiritual side of Jane Austen. By the end of the introduction of this 31-day devotional, I was in love. Rachel Dodge delicately dissects the three prayers Jane entrusted to her devoted sister, Cassandra. The beauty of words we have come to know and love in Austen’s books are ever-present in her prayers, as is her obvious love of the Lord. Insightful, challenging, and warm, this devotional is sure to speak to the hearts and souls of its readers.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the author. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.
