Editorial Reviews

Review

"Flynn skillfully delves into the later years of Austen's life in a way that is sure to please admirers of the 19th-century novelist, as well as providing a fascinating dollop of plot invention and a heartbreaking romance between the two protagonists." Library Journal, Starred Review

"A creative and entertaining novel that addresses some interesting ideas while at the same time telling a cracking good story. " All About Romance

"This story had me spellbound from the first page." Austenesque Reviews

" It's a truth universally acknowledged that one novel couldn't possibly succeed as Austen pastiche, science fiction, romance, and satire all at once, but Flynn has achieved this feat, and has written an excessively diverting tale." Historical Novel Society

"Rachel's wry, observant narrative voice teaches readers the delights and hardships of life in 1815 with rich historical detail." Shelf Awareness

“Kathleen Flynn spins an entertaining story of time travel, complicated romantic connections and Austenalia in her debut novel, The Jane Austen Project...Witty, well-researched and thought-provoking, Flynn’s debut is a fun and unusual addition to the canon of Austen tributes and pastiche.” (Shelf Awareness)

“Written in an engaging Austen style, full of witty dialogue, a secret engagement, and a delightful clan of loving siblings” (Booklist)

“What lover of literature hasn’t dreamed of going back in time to meet Jane Austen? In her debut novel, Kathleen A. Flynn brings this dream to life, creating a vivid portrait of Regency England in all its glory and squalor. Flynn illuminates the stark contrasts between that era and our own, and movingly depicts the heartbreak of those who might try to travel between the two.” (Lauren Belfer, author of AFTER THE FIRE and A FIERCE RADIANCE)

“THE JANE AUSTEN PROJECT is clever, captivating, and original. I loved it and couldn’t put it down! It’s been a long time since I’ve been so engrossed in a novel, or lost so much sleep reading it. Who wouldn’t want to travel back in time and meet Jane Austen? Flynn’s depiction of Jane Austen is wonderful, exactly as I imagine she must have been. The ending is a shocker and one of the strengths of the novel. It presents a view of time travel—and history—you won’t soon forget. A keeper on my Austen shelf.” (Syrie James, author of JANE AUSTEN'S FIRST LOVE)

“I loved THE JANE AUSTEN PROJECT. Brilliantly written and a must-read for any Jane Austen fan!” (Paula Byrne, author of THE REAL JANE AUSTEN)

From the Back Cover

England, 1815: Two travelers—Rachel Katzman and Liam Finucane—arrive in a field, disheveled and weighed down with hidden money. They are not what they seem, but colleagues from a technologically advanced future, posing as wealthy West Indies planters—a doctor and his spinster sister. While Rachel
and Liam aren’t the first team from the future, their mission is by far the most audacious: meet, befriend, and steal from Jane Austen herself. But what they couldn’t have anticipated was the continuous convolutions required of living a lie.

As Rachel’s friendship with Jane deepens and her relationship with Liam grows complicated, Rachel fights to reconcile her true self with the constrictions of nineteenth-century society. When their portal to the future prepares to close, Rachel and Liam struggle with their directive to leave history intact and exactly as they found it . . . however heartbreaking that may prove.
