|Summary, etc.:||" INSPIRED BY ACTUAL EVENTS Fifteen-year-old Jane Austen dreams of three things: doing something useful, writing something worthy, and falling madly in love. When she visits her brother in Kent to celebrate his engagement, she meets wealthy, devilishly handsome Edward Taylor-a fascinating young man who is truly worthy of her affections. Jane knows a match between her and Edward is unlikely, but every moment she spends with him makes her heart race-and he seems to return her interest. Much to her displeasure, however, there is another seeking his attention Unsure of her budding relationship, Jane seeks distraction by attempting to correct the pairings of three other prospective couples. But when her matchmaking aspirations do not all turn out as anticipated, Jane discovers the danger of relying on first impressions. The human heart cannot be easily deciphered, nor can it be directed or managed. And if others must be left to their own devices in matters of love and matrimony, can Jane even hope to satisfy her own heart? "--|

There seems to be no end to our fascination with Jane Austen, as evidenced by the many works of fiction that feature her as a character. Here she is a lively, clever, and somewhat impetuous 15-year-old, who travels with others in her family to Kent to attend the festivities leading up to the marriage of her oldest brother. Along the way, she meets another member of the party, Edward Taylor, and fancies herself in love with him during the three-week visit to her brother's new relations. When several planned activities have to be canceled, Jane proposes putting on a play, Midsummer Night's Dream. She hopes the play will help further her misguided attempts at matchmaking, but the results are not what she expects. James, who also wrote The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen (2008) and The Missing Manuscript of Jane Austen (2012), explains in an afterword that she based almost all of the characters in the novel on real people and the story was inspired by actual events. Fans of all things Austen will have fun with this. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
