I had really hoped to like this book, but I didn't. I never really clicked with the heroine, whom I frequently wanted to slap some sense into or any of the other characters and the story just didn't engage me. I have to force myself to finish. The facts about Jane's life were interesting, but not enough to redeem the rest. In my opinion, in a market current glutted by these Jane Austen-centric novels, this is one you can skip.
I'm a 33 year old wife and mother. I love to read, cook, cross stitch and game. I have an unnatural obsession with the northern UK, although I have never been there. I like weird and interesting news stories. I'll probably bore you with pictures of my kids. Most of all I like to talk!
