SUMMARY:
A charming, romantic debut novel in which Jane Austen, heralded author, ends up time-traveling almost 200 years in the future. There she finds the love she’s written about and the destiny she’s dreamed of…but is it worth her legacy?

Bath, England, 1803. At 28, Jane Austen prefers walking and reading to balls and assemblies; she dreams of someday publishing her carefully crafted stories. Already on the shelf and in grave danger of becoming a spinster, Jane goes searching for a radical solution—and as a result, seemingly by accident, time-travels. She lands in…

Bath, England, present day. The film set of Northanger Abbey. Sofia Wentworth is a Hollywood actress starring in a new period film, an attempt to reinvent her flagging career and, secretly, an attempt to reinvent her failing marriage. When Sofia meets Jane, she marvels at the young actress who can’t seem to “break character,” even off set. And Jane—acquainting herself with the horseless steel carriages and seriously shocking fashion of the twenty-first century— meets Sofia, a woman unlike anyone she’s ever met before. Then she meets Fred, Sofia’s brother, who has the audacity to be handsome, clever, and kind-hearted.

What happens when Jane, against her better judgement, falls in love with Fred? And when Sofia learns the truth about her new friend Jane? And worst of all, if Jane stays with Fred, will she ever achieve her dream, the one she’s now seen come true?

My Review:
This book was sweet. It was a kind and sweet book when Jane travels back to the future. I do have to admit the beginning of the book took time getting there. Once you meet Sofia the book begins to pick up the pace. I kept guessing what was going to happen next. As the story goes on it gives off a feel of Jane Austen vibe and writing. I liked how the author kept Jane from her time period and how kind she was. I kept wondering if this how a person from the future would react like Jane did in the book. I loved the moment where Jane has to buy sugar. It makes you wonder to be grateful for the things that we can get. Jane reacted to the futuristic world with being surprised, in awe and curious. She kept asking questions.

The romance between Fred and Jane was so cute. It just gave the feels of the typical Jane Austen vibe. Besides Fred and Jane’s relationship there was Sofia. I did like that Sofia had to deal with her ex-husband. Plus she she met a librarian who I thought was cool. Sofia and the librarian might date? Then there is drama between Sofia and ex-husband’s new girlfriend on set. Will Sofia accept the girlfriend or no? To find out you must pick up the book.

The ending was bittersweet. The book did kind of had a surprise at the ending in a Jane Austen way.

If you are looking for something sweet, unique and enjoyable to read, this is the book!

So I decided to check out the book section area because I felt like treating myself another book since everything lately has been on a loop: work, weather, school for kids, and kids. Well I saw a variety of books for me and my kids. I decided to focus on me.
