New Jane Austen PortraitWhat one question would you ask Jane Austen?

We posed a question on our Jane Austen Facebook site recently, ‘What one question would you ask Jane Austen if you could?’ Well, we got some great answers, here’s a selection;

Sarah obviously acutely aware of the value of a signed novel would ask,  “can you sign my copy of your book?”  We like that one.

More technically, Fatima suggested, ‘I’d ask for the ending of Sanditon.’
On a lighter note Betty suggested, Was the Apple Pie your favourite?

Here’s one from Dorothy who like many others struggled with Jane’s 3rd book – “What were you trying to achieve with Mansfield Park and what went wrong?”

There were a number looking for insights into Jane’s love life and the content of those burned letters to her sister.

Take a look for yourself on our Jane Austen Facebook site. You will find lots of other interesting items to take your fancy.
