I am new to this site so I was going through and looking for books I have read in the past that stood out in my mind. This was one of them. It was years ago and I was a major sucker for period type romances. I remember reading this entire book before reading the Author's Note at the front of the book to know that is was based on historical fact. She even visited and slept in the house that is built for Jane in the later part of the book. Learning those things after completing the book rather cemented then in my mind. I enjoyed this book very much.
