Lost in Austen

Just finished watching my latest Netflix DVD, Lost in Austen. I thought it was a movie, but it was a 4 part mini series on BBC.

Amanda is a modern girl living in modern London, but longing for the life lived in her favorite book, Pride and Prejudice. One night, miraculously, she finds Elizabeth Bennett has come through a doorway in her bathroom. They end up trading places and Amanda is thrust into life in Jane Austen's Longbourn and right at the beginning of the story. Her presence disrupts the entire story and she spends all of her time trying to undo the damage she's done.
Well written and well cast the story is a delightful take on Austen's most popular book. If you would like to see for yourself, I found this link: You can watch all 4 one hour episode on line!
Go ahead and treat yourself!
Now if only they would do a sequel.......
