Happy new year, and welcome to the first installment of Barnes and Noble.com’s New Reads, discussing The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen with Syrie James! I’m Rachel Kubie and I’ll be your moderator this month.
If Jane Austen’s characters and landscapes wake the romantic in you, if you immediately recall all her bright heroines and their social conundrums, you won’t be able to put down Syrie’s novel. It is too marvelous not to believe it! I fell for it, and kept asking myself, “Why not? Really, it is perfectly plausible, right?”
I’m thrilled we have Syrie with us, so please post many questions for her! I can’t wait to hear what you think!
