I was delighted to hear the news during this week that the Bank of England has announced that none other than Jane Austen herself will grace the ten pound note from 2017.
It is incredible to think that from all the worthy women of British history, it is my heroine that has been chosen.
Just goes to show that Jane Austen still has it! Her wit and wisdom have survived for more than two hundred years. What a fabulous legacy she left us in the form of her novels and surviving letters.
Thank you to all my blog readers who let me know about this.
