And here's a sample of what people are saying:
Publishers Weekly starred review:
"It is the author's passionate connection to 'Jane'—the affinity she feels and her imaginings of Austen's inner life—that bring Austen to life in ways no conventional biographer could... Deliciously uncertain romantic tension holds the book together as Smith weaves her own thoughts, historical research, and fitting references to Austen's novels into a satisfying whole."
Karen Joy Fowler: "A lovely, intimate read."
Emma Campbell Webster: "A welcoming read. Lyrical and questioning...perfectly pitched"
Bookreporter.com: ". . . a likable and vulnerable true-life memoir . . . a moving and well-written read."
Jane Austen's World: "I loved this book. In fact, I suspect if Jane Austen were able to read it, she would give it her seal of approval."
Austen-tatious: "Will surely be an inspiration to anyone who reads it."
Gina Dalfonzo: "Stands out like a beacon. "
Tamara Leigh: "That rare book which keeps popping into one's thoughts and beckoning one back."
Mary Yerkes: Lori’s writing is intelligent, lyrical, and poignant. Her authenticity and vulnerability are rare in Christian circles. This book is a breath of fresh air, one that should be inhaled deeply.
