Like most people (women in particular mostly) you are familiar with Jane Austen’s books. She was a wonderful writer with a knack for telling relationship stories. Though she never had much success herself in love she knew a thing or two about writing perfect love stories hidden by every day lives. I think all Austen fans wish she would have expanded on the books with sequels. Perhaps she would have had she lived longer, who knows.
This is a very enjoyable book. I’ve often felt Jane did not quite develop or at least put into words more about Anne & Frederick. So, it was nice to read someone’s taken on the original characters. I am very particular about reading Austen “sequel” books. I read reviews and the synopsis’ very carefully. I have a high standard I suppose when it comes to spin off books. This one however meets and exceeds the mark, as do all of Amanda’s Austen related books. She does Jane’s story a great credit.
