Holly Newbury's life is on hold in the cozy English village of Chilton Crosse. While her friends are marrying, having children, and embarking on successful careers, Holly is raising her three younger sisters and working part time at the village art gallery. Her life feels incomplete, but family is more important to her than anything. Then a film crew's arrival galvanizes the community, and Holly becomes fast friends with Fletcher Hays, the movie's love-shy American writer.
The production of an Emma film isn't the only drama in town, though. Their father makes a choice that threatens everything she gave up her dreams for. Holly's sisters endure growing pains. And Fletcher plans to return to America as soon as filming is over, ruining any chance of their relationship blossoming further. After years of sacrificing for others, Holly must find the courage to take a risk on a future she never dared to expect.

A Modern Day Jane Austen
Yes I would listen to it again. I liked the way the author included quotes from "Emma" and Jane Austen. The story was a good spin of Emma but with a modern twist. I loved the way the girls came together to help their father heal after living for six years in pain after their mother died.
When Holly was explaining Emma's role and suddenly realized that her life was actually imitating Emma's life and she was able to find Fletcher.
Not an extreme reaction but I did laugh in some places. such as the description of Rascal's antics.
the story took a long time to get to the point but it was not boring. the author was able to weave the lives of all of the citizens of the town as well as the movie set people into the story and still stayed true to Holly and Fletcher's story. I liked how she brought the father's love story into the picture.
