"Hemingway captures the energy of the times, while also writing with the irony and sly humor of Jane Austen herself, complete with the stylistic language of the Regency period. This is truly a worthy addition to the Jane Austen legacy, a story sure to please all Austen fans."

Synopsis

Tradition holds that Jane Austen lived a prim and proper life as a single woman. But what if she wed a man as passionate and intelligent as she—and the marriage remained secret for 200 years?



The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen is a trilogy that resolves the biggest mysteries of Austen’s life, the “lost years” of her twenties—a period of which historians know virtually nothing.



- Why the enduring rumors of a lost love or tragic affair?

- Why, afterward, did the vivacious Jane Austen prematurely put on “the cap of middle age” and shut herself away to write her books?

- Why, after her death, did her beloved sister destroy her letters, journals, and diaries from this period?



The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen trilogy presents an original love story, based on actual history, to put forth a believable, compelling, and plausible answer to Austen’s lost years.



See why critics call this historical fiction about England’s most beloved author “an imaginative journey of the soul.”



Go with Jane Austen as this thinking woman, and sensitive soul, seizes the opportunity for meaningful love with a man who inspires her and understands her independent spirit—the one man worthy of her mind, heart, and soul.

 

About Collins Hemingway

The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen reimagines the life of England?s most famous female author by asking: How would her life have changed if she had married and had a child? How would this thinking woman, and sensitive soul, have responded not to a ballroom flirtation but to a real relationship that developed over time? How would shouldering the responsibilities of marriage and motherhood have changed her as a person and a writer? The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen is the only Austen-themed novel that delves deeply into the psyche of a woman falling in love?and the only novel to address what marriage in the early 1800s would have been like for a woman of intelligence and passion. Using the Austen oeuvre as a foundation, this book takes the heroine out of her safe country village and tosses her into a world that is far more complex and exciting. As the story develops, the protagonist becomes engaged in matters such as the slave trade; the advances that gave birth to the Industrial Revolution; the growing conflicts between science and religion; the antagonism between aristocrats and the rising mercantile class; and the horrifying impacts of the never-ending war with France on English citizens. And all the while, she falls ever more in love with the man who introduces her to this bigger and more dangerous world. Being a courtship novel, Volume I concludes with a happy ending; but it goes beyond a comedy of manners to touch deep, honest feelings between a woman and man. Volume I of The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen sets up the complexity and contradictions of marriage that are addressed in the following volumes: the richness of a requited love set against the often cruel realities of life in the Regency age?for husband as well as wife.
