For my giveaway, I am offering:
Tea with Jane Austen, by Kim Wilson (hardcover)
Who would not want to sit down with Jane Austen and join her in a cup of tea? Here for the first time is a book that shares the secrets of one of her favourite rituals.
Tea figures prominently in Jane Austen’s life and work. At the centre of almost every social situation in her novels, one finds tea. In Emma, does Miss Bates drink coffee? Of course not: ‘No coffee, I think you, for me – never take coffee. – A little tea if you please.’ In Pride and Prejudice, what is one of the supreme honours Mr. Collins can envision Lady Catherine bestowing on Elizabeth Bennet and her friends? Why, drinking tea with her, naturally.
Tea with Jane Austen begins with tea drinking in the morning and ends with tea in the evening, at balls and other gatherings. Each chapter includes a description of how tea was taken at a particular place or time of day, along with history, recipes, excerpts from Austen’s novels and letters and illustrations from the time.
