However...as I read more and more, the more intrigued I was with not only the life Jane led, but also Leithart's writing. Rather than a boring, play by play retelling of Austen's life, I found an interesting and attention-grabbing look at a fascinating woman. I must admit it took me until about a third of the way through before I really jumped into the text. Many interesting facts about Austen's life.
Thank you, Thomas Nelson for this book! I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
