Of course, as a book lover, bibliophile, and absolute Janeite--Courtney has a unique perspective on the time in which she finds herself. Jane Austen's novels have become a part of her life, and all that Austen trivia becomes her survival guide to harrowing social situations.
Explore Time and the Character
Famous writers (like Mark Twain, with his A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court) have explored the premise of a character who goes back in time to encounter famous/historical figures. Rigler's character doesn't meet a character like Merlin or King Arthur, but Courtney's presence in the past still offers a new perspective on Austen--her novels, characters, and setting (with a Romantic/melodramatic slant).
Allow yourself to be transported back in time. Meet Jane Austen in the pages of this novel. It will be an experience that you won't soon forget.
