Annotation

Jane Austen time-travels to the future and falls in love. But will she choose happiness in the present, or her career as a writer in the past?

Publisher Description

'Artfully written and engaging, Jane in Love is a lively effusion of wit and humour.'

  • Graeme Simsion

At age twenty-eight, Jane Austen should be seeking a suitable husband, but all she wants to do is write. She is forced to take extreme measures in her quest to find true love - which lands her in the most extraordinary of circumstances.

Magically, she finds herself in modern-day England, where horseless steel carriages line the streets and people wear very little clothing. She forms a new best friend in fading film star Sofia Wentworth, and a genuine love interest in Sofia's brother Fred, who has the audacity to be handsome, clever and kind-hearted.

She is also delighted to discover that she is now a famous writer, a published author of six novels and beloved around the globe. But as Jane's romance with Fred blossoms, her presence in the literary world starts to waver. She must find a way to stop herself disappearing from history before it's too late.

A modern-day reimagining of the life of one of the world's most celebrated writers, this wonderfully witty romantic comedy offers a new side to Jane's story, which sees her having to choose between true love in the present and her career as a writer in the past.

'Rachel Givney's Jane in Love is everything I wanted it to be and more. It is a delightful modern-day reimagining of Jane Austen's life, full of rich and nuanced characters... It's one of those books that you finish and then want to shout about to everyone who will listen... Givney has created a modern classic, with all the charm and wit we love about Austen in a gorgeous modern England setting. You'll not be disappointed in this fun, delightful and completely entertaining read. I can only hope we get a movie one day!' - Better Reading

'Jane in Love is pure romp with the playful spirit of fanfic. Rachel Givney is a screenwriter with a highly developed understanding of plot structure and narrative drive, and there are some hilarious scenes as Jane comes to terms with electricity, internet technology, and flush toilets.' The Age
