Jane flies into Heathrow airport, where a limo is waiting to take her to Austenland.
On the way, she reviews a packet of notes: "Social History of the Regency Period." It's full of rules on how ladies and gentleman are to act in Austenland.
At the estate, Jane is introduced to the proprietress of Pembrook Park, Mrs. Wattlesbrook. She changes Jane's name to Miss Jane Erstwhile, and gives Jane the opportunity to pretend to be a different age. Jane decides to stay thirty-three.
After a quiz on etiquette, current events, and card game rules in Austenland, Jane is shown her wardrobe, which is filled with authentic period clothing. No Saks tags here.
Mrs. Wattlesbrook confiscates Jane's MP3 player, but Jane hides her cell phone and doesn't give it up.
Jane has dinner and then a quick dance practice with Theodore, a hunky gardener.
That night, Jane hopes that her trip to Austenland will have a "very good ending" (3.75).
