With the release of the recent adaption of Jane Austen‘s Persuasion, it seems like a good time for the Jane Austen Character Book Tag. I found the original tag on Anne with a Book’s Madame Writer Blog. As always, everyone is welcome to participate. Don’t forget to tag Anne with a Book and myself so that we can see your answers.
