Publisher's Summary

After becoming trapped in present-day Bath due to a mishap with her time-traveling charm, Jane Austen is safe and sound back in the 1800s thanks to Rose Wallace’s help. Now, Rose is ready to focus on her fledgling romance with dreamy Dr. Aiden Trevellyan.

But when Jane reappears in the present, it looks like Rose and Aiden have no choice but to follow her back to 1813.... 

Staying in the Austen household, Rose and Aiden are introduced to a number of interesting figures from the past, including Jane’s eccentric - and surprisingly modern - neighbour. Suddenly Rose’s life is in need of a rewrite as she discovers some unexpected ties to Jane Austen's world and her past.

Unusual and delightful.

I love this sequel!

The characters are lively and believable, even in the midst of an impossible situations. This book is funny, articulate and touching. The historical details were fascinating and felt authentic (to an American anyway), while the dialog brought the characters alive and kept the story moving. I also loved this narrator. Her very British interpretation made conversations sparkle and enhanced my enjoyment; making me aware that I had missed an often subtle English humor when I first read this the book from an American perspective.

Love both books

This is a lovely comfort read. They must be read in order. Very odd and totally implausible premise. But I adore then! Very well read. kudos to the narrator. Hurry please with number three.

Loved it

This is book 2 of the series and yes, you really do need to read book 1 before you read this. I’m just disappointed there is no book 3. I want more. Additionally, the narrator was excellent!

Listened to this book for the x time

 I really enjoyed the 1st book in the series, where Jane Austen arrives in the present day and meets Rose.
This time, Rose is taken back to 1813.
Beside the main story, I really enjoyed those glimpses of what it was like living in those times and I loved that I got to meet some of Jane Austen's family too.
Cass Grafton and Ada Bright have written a wonderful book that I will enjoy revisiting again and again.

Bit silly

Ok listening , found story a bit silly and romantic . Not real depth to either characters of story - well I like the Austen connection it didn’t really do it for me
