Translation of my title: if you love everything about reading about people who love books, physically and mentally, you will love this book. If you love Jane Austin you will not be able to put it down.

Well written, wonderfully narrated story that is interesting but borders on the edge of credulity. First a nod to the narrator: she's great. The book goes back to recount 20 year old Jane Austen’s friendship, one centered around books, with an 80 year old retired minister, leading to Jane’s early publications and in present day to deal with a recent Oxford graduate bibliophile and ardent fan of Jane Austen. That the synopsis mentions that the woman’s life if threatened over the search for a book published in Austen’s times that few have ever heard of and fewer who have even read it. I found that the search for the book and the solution to the mystery lead to a suspicious death and a ruthless antagonist carried things a bit too far. But, overall, this was a worthwhile listen.
