What a lovely read. Who would not want to have Jane Austen talking to them especially at the tough time as a teenager? Jane helps Ellie through out the span of the book from being a teenager to being an adult in her 30's. Jane voices her opinion when she does not care of a particular guy. She really can't stand Sam she thinks he is up to no good and compares him to one of her characters. Poor Ellie just has no luck when it comes to men. Even college was not the best time for men in her life. As she gets older she tries to do better. She sees Sam along the years and Jane hates it every time. What will happen with Jane, Ellie and the man that will come into her life? I loved the fact Jane and Ellie's relationship blossoms over time. A wonderful read.
