As a person working on a biography of Jane (of sorts), I found the author's note troubling - "we're free to make it up" isn't any way to write a biography, or a novel where the main character is so darn famous.

I could see that. How much information do we have about her life? Bennett mentioned in the author's note that Cassandra burned all of Jane's letters (or as many as she could find) after her death* -- so it did make me wonder how much we know for certain. (If you're working on a bio, you're the perfect one for me to ask!)

*Jane's death, I mean, obviously.

I really enjoyed this book. It was a very good book to read and very intrigging. When you start reading this book, you can not really bring yourself to stop and put the book down if you need to. This book was very e
enjoyable. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a good sit down and read on a rainy day type book.
