In her new bookThe Jane Austen Guide to Happily Ever After, Elizabeth Kantor explores what Austen heroines can teach women about navigating the modern-day minefields of dating, love, and relationships. By following these heroines’ examples—and steering clear of the mistakes of Austen’s failed characters—Kantor reveals the path to lifelong love and true happiness.
