The Enchantress; or, Where Shall I Find Her?~Mrs. Martin

Original date of entry: October 16, 2001

Well, it's not Jane Austen, but it's still a lot of fun. The plot reminds me of the movie The Shop Around the Corner--anonymous correspondents meeting in real life. The hero, Sir Philip Desormeaux (great name!), reminds me of Mr. Knightley. A good book for when you want something light and fun; it's like a literary equivalent of a Meg Ryan romantic comedy. It was published in 1801 and has been out of print for about 200 years; as far as I know the only place to get it is to download it from the Chawton House Library (see "Novels Online").
