At fifteen, Jane Austen wanted to write, she wanted to find love, and she wanted to be useful. Upon visiting her brother, she meets a boy not much older than she. He's handsome and charming. Could love be in the air?The Good:
I could see inspiration from Jane's writing forming in this novel
The advantages Jane has during this time
Jane breaking the rules
The Author's Afterword is fascinating
Jane is not the best matchmaker (and neither is Emma) but she does make some horrible choices.
Final Thoughts: I really enjoyed this fictional meeting between Jane Austen and a potential suitor. As a Jane Austen fan, I'm always intrigued by her love life.
Cover Thoughts: Love
