Sadly, the best part of this book was the title and the cover. The book itself is a little cheesy, corny, although the ending was not predictable! But that’s because the ending fell flat. Way flat. Ugh.
The idea behind the book was fascinating — a compilation of unpublished Jane Austen letters being guarded by a secret society of a very few women. According to the book, Jane Austen did not write anything — that has survived into our day — for three years (1801-1804). The author takes the liberty of inventing a love story that ends in tragedy to explain the silence. It’s an intriguing thought. But not an intriguing book.
