Your Friend, Katharine, Who Always Gets You Into Trouble
Nobody ever believed you when you were little, but any bad thing you got caught doing was always her idea. Teachers separated you in class; both of your mothers were called into the principal’s office more than once. Even today, you would hesitate to sit next to Katharine at a wedding or a funeral, for without a doubt inappropriate laughter would ensue. You thought perhaps she’d mellow when Harry came along. But no such luck. Her hilarious take on life had only doubled. She’d married someone just like her. Truth be told, though, you’re lucky to have them both. Two friends guaranteed to make you grin every time you’re with them are a treasure indeed. They’ll love these books, and probably read them aloud at your next dinner party!

Your Niece, Tessa, Who Shares Your Love of Britain
She’s the niece you can count on to get up with you at two am to watch the Royal Wedding. Like you, she always found Elizabeth I much more intriguing than George Washington and when she hit her teenage years, it was a poster of Jane Austen she hung in her room. Framed, too, not stuck up with push pins. Tessa was serious about her passion. She has vowed to name her first child, Bronte, be it boy or girl and she has a definite opinion on who made the better Darcy, Colin Firth or the chap in the movie. The two of you try to make it to London to Christmas shop once a year; you’ve lost her in Hatchard’s more than once. You had to choose carefully here, but you think you’ve nailed it. You know these books are for her.
