Critically acclaimed and award-winning - but hardly best-selling - author Georgina Jackson can't get past the first chapter of her second book. When she receives an urgent email from her agent, Georgina is certain it's bad news. Shockingly, she's offered a commission to complete a newly discovered unfinished manuscript by a major 19th-century author. Skeptical at first about her ability to complete the manuscript, Georgina is horrified to learn that the author in question is Jane Austen.

Torn between pushing through or fleeing home to America, Georgina relies on the support of her banker-turned-science-student roommate, Henry, and his quirky teenage sister, Maud - a serious Janeite. With a sudden financial crisis looming, the only way Georgina can get by is to sign the hugely lucrative contract and finish the book.

    " An enjoyable read where the pieces come together at the end, some in unexpected ways. I did get frustrated at times with the amount of time the main character wasted away (toward her writing deadline) by procrastinating & just plain running away, but now I'm laughing at myself - how uptight am I that her deadline was looming over me? "

    " Dragged for a bit but once Georgina got into the Austen books it got better. Great characters except Georgina who I just didn't like much. "

    " I don't have anything particularly biting to say about this book, but it wasn't anything to special. It was okay, I may read it again someday when I'm really bored, but for now, it's going back on my paperbackswap.com listing. "

    " The premise is interesting and appears promising, but it just fell flat for me. I did love the section where the protagonist reads all 6 Austen novels without a break. It reminds me of how I can get caught up in wonderful books. Aston's writing was descriptive, but I just couldn't love it (or even like it that much). "
