Jane Austen fans, what’s your favorite Austen novel? Mine is Persuasion, but I couldn’t help thinking of alternate worlds, hence this parody.
What if Anne Elliot weren’t the capable one? What if it were her sister, Mary Musgrove, instead? A capable Mary and a helpless Anne? Oh, the thought. Why, the Regency world might be upside down! Who would Captain Wentworth take back to sea with him? Read to find out!
The challenge of the day is to find all the differences between Jan Thompson’s A Persuasion Parody (Jane Austen Upside Down Book 1) short story and that original Jane Austen Right Side Up, the classic Persuasion. Well, let the scavenger hunt begin.
If you are looking for something quick and Regency, clean and sweet to read, here’s a short story that fits into your smart phone. Happy reading!
