Book Details
Author: Rebecca H. Jamison

Jane Austen wrote wonderful, witty, romantic satires...

And now Rebecca H. Jamison is adding a modern twist to the story which makes it even more entertaining and even more romantic and even more wonderful!

Elly and Maren are both mourning the loss of their father...

Elly, the sensible one, has thrown herself into finding a way to make money to pay all the debt the loss of the family business as brought along with the death of her father.

Maren is having a harder time moving on...

Her passion for life and art has withered as she sinks into a deeper depression.

Each will "encounter the madness and misadventures of love" as Elly falls for a man who can't commit and Maren finds relief from the depression in a passionate, but unstable boyfriend.

As they both move forward in trying to secure a brighter future they will learn that love and honor outweigh all else...

That the heart has a mind of it's own...

And that sometimes it takes a person with a little sense to help them learn the art of sensibility.

  1. Hallo, Hallo! :)

    I finished reading this novel myself for the blog tour tonight, and I must say I agree with you about it being a 'must read'. I was curious what was your favourite part about the close bond Elly & Maren shared? What did you love the most about the story? You wrote an encouraging post about the novel, but I was left curious which aspects were your favourite. Cheers to celebrating an after canon release for Jane Austen!

    1. You ask GREAT QUESTIONS!
      Not sure I have the answers you are seeking :)

      My blog posts are a little different from most...

      1. I want my posts to be "short and sweet" as sometimes life gets to crazy busy to read lengthy reviews, so I want to get right at what the book is about, without too much else...therefore I purposely leave out a lot of what other bloggers put in.

      2. I also read a little differently from other people. I bask in the experience of the whole book without breaking it apart...therefore my favorite part is the adventure of the complete story. I love how the authors weave in different aspects of the story that bind it all together so at the end I can say with a sigh...that was a great book!

      I am grateful you stopped by and gave me a chance to ponder...and explain.

      Please come see me again :)
