Spring into Books Giveaway Hop: Enter to Win the Hardcover Book, “Tea with Jane Austen,” by Kim Wilson!

Welcome to the Spring into Books blog hop! Every blog participating in this event will be offering a book-related giveaway worth at least $10. After entering my giveaway, be sure to hop around to the other blogs listed in the linky below the Rafflecopter form.

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.

  20. I haven't read any of Jane Austin's books. I don't know if I can actually get into the stories. And I don't drink tea at all. My daughter always tries to make me drink her different flavor teas. I don't know what it is about tea that people like. Thank you so much for a chance to win and for being a part of this fun and awesome blog hop!!

  24. Emma, of course! Every time I read it, I'm amazed at how 'modern' her attitude still seems. Some books become dated, but Austen's characters seem very human and very relatable. (Is that a word, lol?)
