I've gotten my first negative reviews at Amazon. <sigh.> Really, I did think some Austen fans might not quite 'get' the book, so I wasn't entirely surprised, though the initial feedback (from endorsements and such) has been so incredibly positive. I'm trying not to have my feelings hurt, and I'm glad to get a healthy debate going. So if you've read the book and loved it -- or hated it -- please stop by Amazon and post your thoughts.
If you've read the Amazon reader reviews and wonder whether you'll like the book, there are lots of excerpts here on the blog. And just to be clear, it's a memoir / biography / travelogue, so it's as much about me as it is about Jane.
