An English professor travels to Latin America to take Austen south of the border. She learned Spanish, and organized book groups to discuss various Austen titles throughout the countries. Along the way, she contracts dengue fever and falls in love. This book made me miss my wonderful book group in Texas as Smith's participants hashed out Austen's message as it translated from English to Spanish, from the Old world to the New, and from her time to ours. Very inspiring--made me want to reread (and rewatch!) a lot of the books, learn another language, read the local authors that were recommended, and travel around scattering books. It just doesn't get any better than that!
