A perfect combination of history and fiction with an endearing cast of characters, THE JANE AUSTEN SOCIETY is a lovely and thoroughly enjoyable read. It is not a book to be rushed but instead savored, like the books of Jane Austen herself. The writing is poetic and the descriptions of both places and characters filled with emotion and depth.
If you are a Jane Austen fan you will find much satisfaction in the number of times the author pays homage to her books and her legacy. But that doesn’t mean you have to be an Austen fan to enjoy it. This wonderful debut novel stands apart from the history it refers to with a strong plot and clear stakes that keep the reader invested to the very end.
