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?
