it was amazing

The author of A Contrary Wind did an excellent job of portraying the world and times of Jane Austen. Her research was impeccable. (Or if it wasn’t, then she was certainly able to make it seem as if it was!) I love it when authors can weave actual history into their story without distracting you (or boring you!) from the story itself. Also, the writing style is very authentic to Austen's. If you had handed me this book and told me, “This was one of Jane’s alternate endings for Mansfield Park”, I honestly think I would believe that a new manuscript had been discovered and published for all of us readers who are hungry for more of Jane Austen’s works. Great stuff!
