Praise for The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen Series

Hemingway again displays his notable ability to recreate time and place, moving on from the heady days of Jane Austen's early love to a marriage beset by difficulties and a country at war. Hemingway ... vividly and authentically portrays the times. ... [T]his is a lively, compelling read, [a] sobering but moving finale to Hemingway's successful trilogy. —BlueInk Review

 Immensely satisfying ... Marriage is lively, compelling, and fun. ... [Her] relationship with her husband Ashton still sparkles. Marriage is a lovely ode to their connection. ... Hemingway has combined Austen's humanity with her fiction and created a Jane that lives and breathes on the page. Audiences will want her to be real... It offers a wonderful, imagined alternate life for the well-loved author. —Claire Foster, Foreword Review

‘Enjoyable … an imaginative, well-researched series.’ —Kirkus Reviews


In this 3rd volume of The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen, Collins Hemingway has totally convinced me that he knew Jane Austen. As a wife, a mother, a woman who knew great happiness and even greater sadness. Through his words I felt her exhaustion as she cared for her infant son, her concern when he became ill, and her devastation when she thought he might not recover. I also witnessed her happiness and her struggles in her marriage to Ashton Dennis. Hemingway has crafted a story that tugged at my heartstrings and made me forget what was truth and what was fiction in this look at the 'lost years of Jane Austen.' Isn't this what all authors hope to achieve?

I received a copy of The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen Vol III through Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tours for review purposes. These are my honest thoughts.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
