Teaser Tuesdays: The Heroine's Bookshelf

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading.

Grab your current read. Open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

The Heroine's Bookshelf: Life Lessons, from Jane Austen to Laura Ingalls Wilder by Erin Blakemore p. 5

"Jane's choice to end her embarrassing engagement was the first foray into the battle for self-determination she would fight for the rest of her life."

Jane Austen, like many of the authors profiled in this book, fought her personal battles on the page, whether or not she consciously realized it. For who is more self-determined than Elizabeth Bennett?

Sounds like this would be a good read. I'm curious.
My Teaser is from THINGS WE SET ON FIRE.
