I read the many great reviews on the goodreads app and agree with them all. There are some naysayers. But I have to say that not only did I enjoy the book, but I felt as if I actually know Ms. Austen. I believe that was because the author seemed to capture her spirit and the narrator did an amazing job of bringing the writing to life.

Syrie James skillfully interweaves historical details of Jane Austen's life, aspects of her wit & wisdom, character & convictions, and details of her writings to create a most intriguing unveiling of her one "true love" -- cherished by Austen, but kept secret out of necessity. James most cleverly crafts a plot in which the events (revealed by this lost memoir) serve to inspire Austen to make key plot changes to several of her novels (as we now know & adore them) as she experiences deep emotional turmoil as well as intense joy and passion.
Stina Nielsen is a masterful narrator who beautifully manifests the voices of quite a few diverse characters. I lost myself in the storyline as I listened to the audio book because Nielsen so adeptly brings each character to life. To feel like I'm listening to an a conversation that actually could have taken place by or near Jane Austen is phenomenal!
