“A girl likes to be crossed a little in love now and then.”

If Jane Austen had gotten married, would she have written her novels?
When Professor Anne Eddington’s career is threatened, that’s the question that drives her to time-travel back to 1796 for answers. But, romantically disappointed herself, Anne’s profound sympathy for the young, love-struck writer compromises her academic objectivity, causes her to inadvertently encourage Jane’s engagement to the wrong man — and threatens to change the course literary history.
Really charming, unique… professional on every level… the consistency of tone reflects a mastery of craft.”
