It's easy to see why I'd be a sucker for any book that had the name in the title.

Unlike other authors who are delving into remakes of such classics, this novel takes place shortly after World War Two in Austen's hometown of Chawton, England. Jane's house, a bad will, the possibility of a golf course- all enough to gather a few townspeople and and American movie star to recitify the situation.When people are drawn together over their love of Austen, anything can happen.
