A Skillfully Woven, Compelling Tale!

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!

Should be a screenplay!

I truly enjoyed this book and the narrator's performance. It would have been a better version of "Becoming Jane" for me. Thank you, Syrie!
