    i enjoyed this book very much. it had the feel of the times of jane austen. the confusion of the teller of the story was believable and it was engaging to wait to see if she managed to accept her new life and finally fitted in. all the various incidents were true to life in those times, it seemed to me. i would be happy to listen again to this book.

    Two stories here: one in the past and another in the present. Plot is innovative and promising. But our main character, Courtney, Jane Austen would have sliced and diced her! Had one been able to skim over all Courtney's streams of consciousness blabbity, blabbity, blabbity- perhaps the book would have been so so. But an audiobook affords no such pleasure. Listening to the blather has to be endured. I stuck with the book only because I love Jane Austen. The author's references to Austen's novels/characters, plus setting the past storyline in Austen's era kept me hooked. I was struck with the contrast of Austen's women and Courtney. Although modern woman is free of the sexist attitudes of the nineteenth century, our character Courtney embraced the role of 'gotta have a man, any man, to be happy'?. And the end was a cop out. Do yourself a favor and resist this addiction!

    Loved this book. Yes, I'm a Jane Austen addict and have often thought about what it would be like to live in those times. I wish the ending was a little stronger and gave us a smidge more info about our modern heroine.

    I thought the plot very creative and fun. Also, funny to hear the reaction of a modern woman from LA as she deals with how to act with Jane Austen-era social expectations.
