Description
Inspired by actual events. Fifteen-year-old Jane Austen dreams of three things- doing something useful, writing something worthy, and falling madly in love. When she visits her brother in Kent to celebrate his engagement, she meets wealthy, devilishly handsome Edward Taylor - a fascinating young man who is truly worthy of her affections. Jane knows a match between her and Edward is unlikely, but every moment she spends with him makes her heart race - and he seems to return her interest. Much to her displeasure, however, there is another seeking his attention. Unsure of her budding relationship, Jane seeks distraction by attempting to correct the pairings of three other prospective couples. But when her matchmaking aspirations do not all turn out as anticipated, Jane discovers the danger of relying on first impressions. The human heart cannot be easily deciphered, nor can it be directed or managed. And if others must be left to their own devices in matters of love and matrimony, can Jane even hope to satisfy her own heart? Praise for the novels of Syrie James 'Offers a deeper understanding of what Austen's life might have been like.' Los Angeles Times 'A fine storyteller, with a sensitive ear for the Austenian voice . . . A thoughtful, immensely touching romance . . . Well researched, well written, and beautifully plotted.' Jane Austen's Regency World Readers guide inside.
