About the Book

Jane Austen in Scarsdale

Anne Ehrlich is a lovely and dedicated guidance counselor steering her charges through the perils of college admission. Years ago, she let the love of her life get away, because her dear but snobbish grandmother didn't think penniless Ben Cutler from Queens was good enough for a wealthy, well-educated girl from Scarsdale. Anne has never married and hasn't seen Ben since-but when his nephew turns up in her high school and starts applying to college, Anne starts to wonder… Can old love be rekindled and past mistakes be put right?

Combining the wit and romance of Jane Austen's Persuasion with a brilliantly astute look at the frenzy of college admissions, Jane Austen in Scarsdale is an irresistible modern comedy of manners.
