I am an avid Jane Austen fan from way back when and I really enjoyed Most Truly, which picked up where Pride and Prejudice ended. Kitty's and James' love story is beautifully written. A mature and demure Kitty Bennet, shy with a bit of self doubt, but most assuredly still with her innate playfulness, she captivated the honourable, gentlemanly James Fitzgerald. Their chemistry was obvious and the restraint and caring thoughtfulness of James as he agonized over his attraction for Kitty was very well managed by Reina Williams.
The narrator could have been more vibrant and dynamic in her narration, but all in all a good effort on her part.
A delightful 'sequence' to Pride and Prejudice and I like the portrayal of the main characters and of course the supporting characters helped to make this an enthralling read.
A great read and by Ms. Williams.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
As a life long Jane Austen fan, I wasn't sure if I would take to a 'what if' story; but I was pleasantly surprised, and I really enjoyed this novella, and it's 'voice'.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Most Truly?
The rather overlooked, Kitty Bennett, finds her own voice in this highly 'listenable to version'. The narration hits just the right tone, and shows off the writing beautifully. It is no mean feat to take the Kitty character and develop it into something so authentic. The author does this really well, and I got so absorbed in the story, I forgot to do some essential tasks, and some of my other worries just went out of the window. That, in my opinion is the essence of a good book.
What does Kate Sample bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The author has paid attention to some crucial details; which make the book credible, and the English narration, with its delicacy and simplicity, adds to the whole experience. Highly recommended by me; and I am not easily pleased!
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I loved the dialogue, particularly.
Any additional comments?
A really good combination of words well written and well narrated.
