So you are a New Englander. I came here in 1962 and like to set my novels in NE as it has become my home. I had nineteen addresses by the age of 17 so love having roots.(less)

Jeanine Malarsky is starting The Complete Works of Jane Austen (In One Volume) Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, Northanger Abbey, Persuasion, Lady ...
