I invite readers of Two Teens in the Time of Austen to The Book Rat for the FIFTH annual AUSTEN IN AUGUST — August 18 through 31. A Fest to Feast upon. Check it out!
Emma Smith and Mary Gosling are the two teens in question. Mary was born 2 February 1800 and Emma 27 September 1801. Sisters-of-the-heart, they became sisters-in-law in 1826.
