I was just really disappointed with this book. From the title I expected the book to be about someone's travels around England to famous Austen places both real and fictional, which I suppose this book was. Really all of that was secondary to the author's musings and obsessions with love and illness.

Lori Smith really irritated me most of the time as she wrote about all the ways that perhaps she and Jane Austen are similar, and her speculations about what Jane would think of her life.

So glad I only paid a $1 for this at a rummage sale.

This is book is full of lack luster writing, and was boring as nothing else. The idea of it it was enchanting as it is something I would love to do. There is no delivery. Everything Austen seems to be thrown in as an after thought.
