Read full description of the books:
Anne Ehrlich is a dedicated guidance counselor steering her
high-school charges through the perils of college admission. Thirteen
years ago, when she was graduating from Columbia University, her
wealthy family -- especially her dear grandmother Winnie -- persuaded her to give up the love of her life, Ben Cutler, a penniless boy from
Queens College. Anne has never married and hasn't seen Ben
since -- until his nephew turns up in her high school and starts
applying to college.
Now Ben is a successful writer, a world traveler, and a
soon-to-be married man; and Winnie's health is beginning to fail. All
of these changes have Anne beginning to wonder: Can old love be
rekindled, or are past mistakes too painful to forget?
With all the wit and perceptiveness of Jane Austen's Persuasion,
Jane Austen in Scarsdale is a fresh and romantic new comedy from a
novelist with "a knack for making modern life reflect literature in the
most engaging manner" (Library Journal).
