This book was so so so sweet. I'm a big fan of the 4 Austen books I have read and it was fun to figure out how the author tried to fit characters into this book as influences to Austen's characters. I loved how she wrote about Jane Austen's mother and couldn't get Brenda Blethen's character (Mrs. Bennett in the Kiera Knightly version) out of my head. Also, every time the author mentioned Jenny's brother I thought of the Mr. Collins in Pride & Prejudice. Although this book was fiction, I loved looking into Jane Austen as an actually person. I recommend this book to all. I would have given it a full 5 stars if the author had written more like the era in which the characters lived.
