While browsy through the New Amsterdam branch of the New York Public library, the jacket caught my eye. Because I loved the movies Sense & Sensibility and Pride & Prejudice, I wanted to read about Jane. This book by far was the best introduction into her life and how she began to write and why she wrote the stories she did. I couldn't put the book down! Sometimes hard to understand due to the times she lived in, I found even rereading passages was not boring. I wanted to learn more and more about her and what she had accomplished in her short but amazing life. Now I want to purchase the book and have it in my personal library.
