My Thoughts: I am hopelessly addicted to all things Austen, and while this wasn't the best spin-off that I've ever read, it was still a very good book for me! I loved the idea of attending an Austen seminar for a week at Oxford, no less. For some reason I really understood Claire and her need to take care of everyone but herself. I was also drawn into the idea of there being an unpublished copy of First Impressions. Wouldn't that be beyond belief if you were to hold a copy of that in your very own hands, knowing that Jane Austen's pen graced those very pages???? I noticed that this one only averaged 3.29 on Goodreads, but I'm basing my final number (4/5) solely on how much I enjoyed this story and how I could so easily envision myself as Claire, looking for my Mr. Darcy.
Recommended for Austen fans!!
