Reflections: Jane Austen In Scarsdale: Or Love, Death, and the SATs

Cortney Howes shares her thoughts on  Paula Marantz Cohen's Jane Austen In Scarsdale: Or Love, Death, and the SATs:

"At the library I came across Jane Austen in Scarsdale: Or Love, Death, and the SATs. Since I am a huge Jane Austen fan I felt that I had to read this book since her name was in the title

Anne Ehrlich is a high-school guidance counselor who dedicates her life to helping the students in her care get into the college of their dreams. She was raised in a very wealthy family and attended Columbia University. As a young college student she fell in love with a man that did not live up to her family's financial expectations. When it came time for them to take the next step her family convinced her that he was not right for her. Now, thirteen years later, her family has lost their fortune, she is single and he is back in town. This book takes the reader on her journey on figuring out if they were really meant to be or if she is just holding onto something that is no longer hers.

This book is an easy, light read. There are a lot of references to things that go on in a school workplace and will be found very entertaining to those who are familiar with these settings. I would recommend it if you are looking for something to help clear your mind. I plan on reading Paula Cohens other book, Jane Austen in Boca, in the near future."
