Many rumors abound about a mysterious gentleman said to be the love of Jane's life--finally, the truth may have been found. . . . What if, hidden in an old attic chest, Jane Austen's memoirs were discovered after hundreds of years? What if those pages revealed the untold story of a life-changing love affair? That's the premise behind this spellbinding novel, which delves into the secrets of Jane Austen's life, giving us untold insights into her mind and heart. Jane Austen has given up her writing when, on a fateful trip to Lyme, she meets the well-read and charming Mr. Ashford, a man who is her equal in intellect and temperament. Inspired by the people and places around her, and encouraged by his faith in her, Jane begins revising Sense and Sensibility, a book she began years earlier, hoping to be published at last. Deft and witty, written in a style that echoes Austen's own, this unforgettable novel offers a delightfully possible scenario for the inspiration behind this beloved author's romantic tales. It's a remarkable book, irresistible to anyone who loves Jane Austen--and to anyone who loves a great story.… (mais)

I haven't read much Jane Austen and really didn't know a lot about her. Although the book is fiction, there is enough information through the footnotes, Author's Note, and timeline to get the basics. I really enjoyed the story and hope that she really did have a romance like the one with Mr. Ashford or better. The book was very well written and I'm going to keep it. ( )

A box is found in the walls of a building while being remodeled. The contents are claimed to belong to Jane Austen. The journals fit the times and places she was known to be and the names of people as well.
There's only one family name that doesn't match up and the home of this gentleman.
This story was very well done. ( )

Historical fiction written by fictional researcher who was privy to the lost memoirs of Jane Austen recently discovered in the renovations of an Austen family home. It is hard not to buy into the whole story allegedly told by Jane of the years 1815-1817. Readers of Austen's work and Austen's biographies will recognize most as truth or truth as history surmises it. I loved the manner in which it was written and thought James' research excellent. For fans of Jane Austen and her works, it's a delightful read. ( )

This was the perfect vacation read for me last week. It's pure fiction, a "what if" Jane Austen romance, but includes a lot of true, historical details from her life. It made me want to pick up a biography about her. It was also entertaining and fun to see how the author incorporated plot elements from Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility into the story.

This was a very different read for me than I am used to. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The author did a great job of weaving together fact and fiction. I could easily see the story from that time period, and allow myself to imagine Jane Austen actually writing the story. Of course, I'm not a history expert, so there may have been inconsistencies which I didn't notice - I felt it was true to the time period. ( )
