Jane Austen and You

I’ve noticed that Bais Yaakov students are powerfully attracted to Jane Austen novels, and I’ve always suspected it’s because of the resemblance our lives have to Regency lower-aristocracy; the standards are high, the means are low, the desperation mounting.

Am I right? Why do you like Austen? How does or doesn’t it resemble your life?

What other books should be in the Bais Yaakov genre?
