It is pretty easy for me to identify with a character who longs to live in (or hide in) a novel. Especially a Jane Austen novel. I really get it!

Even so, this book was a slow start for me. I didn't really like the main character, Lily, from the beginning, and to be honest, I couldn't really even figure out who she was supposed to be. Her actions seemed inconsistent. But I did finally get pulled into the story, if a little irritated by it at times. Jones redeemed herself in the last two chapters, however, with a very fitting and satisfying finish. I found that I liked the person that Lily had become.
