Overview

Was Mr. Darcy real? Is time travel really possible? For pragmatic Manhattan artist Eliza Knight the answer to both questions is absolutely, Yes! And Fitzwilliam Darcy of Pemberley Farms, Virginia is the reason why!

His tale of love and romance in Regency England leaves Eliza in no doubt that Fitz Darcy is the embodiment of Jane Austen’s legendary hero. And she’s falling in love with him. But can the man who loved the inimitable Jane Austen ever love average, ordinary Eliza Knight?

Eliza’s doubts grow, perhaps out of proportion, when things start to happen in the quiet hamlet of Chawton, England; events that could change everything. Will the beloved author become the wedge that divides Fitz and Eliza or the tie that binds them?

I was completely engrossed. The personal side of Jane Austen was eye opening. I felt I was sitting by the fire listening to Aunt Jane telling a story. It was heaven. Sally did a wonderful job making her Darcy so much like Jane's Darcy but with his own little quirks and modern tendencies. I'm very excited that I got to review this book when I did because this year is the 200th anniversary of Pride and Prejudice. I will be rereading Jane's book in honor of that and I highly recommend Sally's book.

Yours Affectionately, Jane Austen is a sweet Austen related romance with a time travel twist.
I felt the author captured Jane Austen's voice very well and I enjoyed reading her thoughts and reactions as the story flowed.
I enjoyed the idea that Jane Austen wrote Darcy a letter and he receives it, two centuries later, and from his current love interest.
I wondered how it would all end, and this one has a bittersweet ending, and I was satisfied with it. I was left with a *sigh*.

Meet the Author

“Where shall I begin? Which of all my important nothings shall I tell you first?” (J.A. June 15, 1808)
That I reside in a small Victorian village in southern California; a mere two miles from my place of employment, a local hospital where I spend most daylight hours in the operating room as a scrub nurse.
That I am a native Californian, having been born in Glendale, and spent most of my life here with a relatively short span of years in Reno, Nevada where I attended school. Returning after graduation I have remained in sunny SoCal.
That I was widowed some time ago. That I have very domestic hobbies like sewing, cooking, baking, candy making and cake decorating. Oh, I write, too. Mike, my late husband and teacher, taught me that writing has to be treated like a job so every day no matter how tired I am I edit, research and write one or more projects.
That I have completed my first solo effort Yours Affectionately, Jane Austen; available now at most on-line retailers. That I have started a story of reincarnation taking place in Pasadena, CA and am making notes for a ghost story set in San Francisco. Two stories running around in my head and often colliding but I untangle the debris and continue on.
And so you have a few of my nothings.

    You can't do half stars, or I would have made this a 3.5 star. Its a cute story (I figured out its a sequel), with the time travel adding interest to the romance. I think my favorite character was actually Simmons. I really wanted more for him! The whole premise was a cute idea, I think, and was entertaining. It wasn't the most exciting romance I've ever read, but it was nice, and had a nice ending.
    I was given a copy of this through Story Cartel for my honest review.

    Creative, different, and enjoyable

    Did I enjoy this book: I really did enjoy this book. I thought it was creative, different, and very enjoyable. 




    Fitz Darcy loves Jane Austen. He met her when he accidentally found a portal back to 1810 and was nursed back to health by Jane herself. Now, he has met Eliza who found and delivered the letters addressed to him from Jane Austen. He is completely in love with Eliza and wonders if that is possible after such a short time. However, his feelings for Jane concern Eliza. Eliza is a modern woman who sees love as not being logical or rational. She has not had any serious, committed relationships and cannot imagine herself entering into one or finding that "one true love." That is until she met Fitz Darcy and can't shake the feeling of comfort and belonging when she is with him. 




    These two main characters - Fitz and Eliza - were well-written and made sense. You could see who they were, what they were thinking, and how they felt for one another. Their love for each other was apparent to the reader even as they were trying to figure it out for themselves. Fitz is kind, generous, and an all-around good guy. He can be a bit harsh sometimes but that can be overlooked easily. Eliza is an artist with great talent but who is humble. She can be too logical at times but it doesn't hold her back.




    The main events that occur in this book are interesting and somewhat typical for time travel books. Jane Austen's brother's groom, Robert Simmons, came through the portal looking for Fitz in order to make a better life for himself. This concerns Fitz because the appearance of Simmons in the future could alter Jane's life in the past. Of course, Simmons is completely out of his element and amazed by what he sees and learns about the future. 




    Would I recommend it: I would recommend this book especially to Jane Austen fans.




    Will I read it again: I just might read this book again...not every year, but definitely in a few years.

    I was really looking forward to this novel. I enjoyed The Man


    I was really looking forward to this novel. I enjoyed The Man who loved Jane Austen. However, if you have not read the first book, you will not have any problem just jumping into book 2. This book starts out a bit clunky, going back and forth and rehashing a lot of what is in the first one. It picked up though and I enjoyed it just as much.
    Favorite Plot points: How Georgiana becomes a part of P&P and Fitz’ concern for the space time continuum. The one thing I didn’t care for so much is the pace of the relationship between the two primaries. It seemed to take forever and felt like it could have gotten from point A to point B quicker and then it just ends.
    All in all, I really liked it. Love time travel, love Austen, Ms. Smith-O’Rourke blends them together nicely.
