My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading!
A small village Chawton has been home to well known Jane Austen. Decades later, at the end of the Second World War, a group of Chawton residents bonded by the love of England’s most talented and beloved novelist has gathered together for a very important mission – to preserve and restore Jane Austen’s home and continue her legacy.
The task, so simple at the beginning, demanded a lot of attention, resources, and conquest over numerous obstacles. But with the help of Jane Austen’s dedicated fans, the mission did not only become accomplished but also created new long-lasting friendships and a few happy endings.
The plot of the novel was great, yet very predictable. I found myself very distracted while reading the story. Nevertheless, I believe this book is a great dedication to a wonderful novelist. Thank you NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for a free and advanced copy of the novel.
