The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen

The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen

Sryie James

4 Stars

I picked this book up at Costco for $8 and I'm so glad I found it, it was cute, a quick read and really fun.

The book is written to make you believe that is the true memoirs of Jane Austen. At parts it really can fool you. For the most part the author has stayed true to the places and times of Jane Austen, but added just a few fictitious characters and personal thoughts to make a really fun book.

I started and finished this book in one day. It’s not heavy reading by any means but do at least give it a few chapters before you decide to put it down (after the 3rd or 4th at least!)I was reminded of The Work and the Glory when I read this book – facts mixed with fiction. All under 300 pages!
