I read this book quickly and I enjoyed it because I am a Jane Austen fan. It was fun to see the flip side of the story. The biggest failing in the book was that I was not convinced that Jane loved Frank. I don't really like him in Emma and I still did not like him. I wanted to, but he is too duplicit.

I enjoyed this book. I thought the ending was a bit drawn-out... so I did some skimming there... If I read too much I got pissed-off at the Mr. Churchill character. He was too much of a flirt. Overall I thought the author was true to the original story, and her story blended well.

An insighful and sensitive examination of Jane Fairfax of Jane Austen's Emma character. True to the original.
