It took me a little while to warm to this novel...it seemed impossibly stuffy at first...and then it really sunk its teeth in. Jane Fortune is an endearing and considerate heroine, once you get to know her a bit; and there's a page-turning romance...will she or won't she get together with the guy she jilted years before? He's now a famous author and modelizer, young women are throwing themselves at him, and Jane is not getting any younger or trendier.
This book has a whiff of the Old World about it, a kind of European charm, that seems aloof at first but rapidly becomes warm and cozy. It's not quite like Austen...Austen's heroines were more often poor than rich...but it's an illuminating look at a way of life that many people have never experienced, and the romance is satisfying.

Modern version of Jane Austen's Persuasion. A delightful read that I found very hard to put down.Published 12 months ago by K. Hoehne

Not a clean fiction book. I was very disappointed as the overall story had good potential. Seeing that I have read many JA sequels, spin-offs, etc. check those other ones out. Read morePublished on July 11, 2014 by K. Hatch
I loved the first chapter of this book but then it became so slow and so boring. Perhaps you must be a huge Austen fan to get in to this novel?Published on June 4, 2014 by anonsf
Persuasion is my favorite Austen. This modern retelling was uneven. It's not a clever updated like Bridget Jones or Clueless; it's difficult to embrace. Read morePublished on May 1, 2014 by H. Ding
From the title you think it's going to be about money - not realizing the family name is Fortune.........very delightful read.Published on April 11, 2013 by Sharyn Baer
Truly a great book. Horowitz has matched Fitzgerald in her literary style. It is witty and humorous as well as thoughtful. I would recommend it to anyone.Published on March 14, 2013 by Rod Starcke
