A Jane Austen time travel story that I didn’t know that I needed. I enjoyed the read. I only wish that the relationship between the couple had been more developed. I didn’t even know they liked each other until 3/4 of the way through the book. But, maybe that’s how love is sometimes – it just creeps up on you.
Perfect for fans of Jane Austen, this engrossing debut novel offers an unusual twist on the legacy of one of the world's most celebrated and beloved authors: Two researchers from the future are sent back in time to meet Jane and recover a suspected unpublished novel.
London England, 1815: Two travelers—Rachel Katzman and Liam Finucane—arrive in a field, disheveled and weighed down with hidden money. They are not what they seem, but colleagues from a technologically advanced future, posing as a doctor and his spinster sister. While Rachel and Liam aren’t the first team of time travelers, their mission is the most audacious yet: meet, befriend, and steal from Jane Austen.
