I have just finished reading, Writing Jane Austen, by Elizabeth Aster. Writing Jane Austen was full of new friends to read about, and places to see as Georgina learns about Jane Austen through the people around her. Aster has given us a sequel that is refreshing as a story to stand alone, not a sequel or a what might have happened after the man in possession of a good fortune has found his wife.
I hope that you will take a journey with Georgina.
PS: I wished I could have shopped at DARCY'S!
writing jane austen by Elizabeth Aster
CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED AND AWARD-WINNING-but hardly bestselling-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 manscript by a major nineteenth-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.
