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?
