“Emma Grant blames Jane Austen for her belief in "happily ever after," as well as her parents. Emma recently found her husband cheating with her teaching assistant on their kitchen table. To make matters worse, the TA accused Emma of plagiarism and her jerk of a husband sided with the TA.
She goes off to England and is complies with some "tasks" that an elderly woman sets to her. All having to do with Jane Austen and a gap in her life span that historians cannot account for.
This book wasn't horrible, but it isn't fantastic either. Get it from the library. There are a few spelling errors and one major Jane Austen faux pas regarding the family's surname of Mansfield Park.
I'd give it 2.5 stars. Shelfari really needs an "okay" rating. ”
