"Hemingway is firmly in his scenes, skillfully drawing readers into Jane’s world. Jane’s voice is particularly strong. In Hemingway’s hands, she is a living, breathing presence—a vibrant character Austen herself would applaud."

Synopsis

Jane Austen Lived a Quiet, Single Life--Or Did She?
Tradition holds that Jane Austen lived a proper, contemplative, unmarried life. 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 resolves the biggest mystery of Austen's life--the "lost years" of her twenties--of which historians know virtually nothing.
* Why the enduring rumors of a lost love or tragic affair?
* Why, afterward, did the vivacious Austen prematurely put on "the cap of middle age" and close off any thoughts of finding love?
* Why, after her death, did her beloved sister destroy her letters and journals?

The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen trilogy answers these questions through a riveting love affair based on the history of the times and accurate details of Austen's own life.

"A skillful portrayal of an early nineteenth-century literary icon takes this historical romance on an imaginative journey of the soul." --Foreword CLARION Reviews, 4 stars

"Hemingway captures the energy of the times, while also writing with the irony and sly humor of Austen herself." --Blueink Starred Review

"Hemingway, with the lightest touch, builds up a thoroughly convincing alternative history." --Jane Austen's Regency World
