Hope O'Neill becomes the victim of an unexpected accident and wakens (she thinks) in a mysterious place that she discovers is called Crossroads. From the people running this place, Cora and Poindexter, she finds out she has three choices: returning to her old life, going to a new one in possibly a different time and place, or passing on. As a long-time fan of the works of a certain Jane Austen, Hope decides not to return to her old life but to assume the identity of a girl in Regency England who has also met an untimely end.
This book follows Hope through her coming to terms with the end of her life as she knew it, making her decision as to what to do with her second chance, and eventually into her new life set two hundred years in the past.
What did I like about this book? Pretty much all of it! The concept is fascinating, I loved Cora and Poindexter guiding their clients through a difficult process, and the characters themselves make you want to know more about them. Hope's choice and her new life make fascinating and, at times amusing reading, as she tries to come to terms living life in a world without modern technology and amenities and where manners and society are so very different from the 21st century. I won't give away any plot details as such, but she definitely seems to be living life in a Jane Austen novel, or novels, at times.
My copy of this book came from the UK store but I'm posting this here, too, so that my many friends in the US can see how much I enjoyed it, too.
I received a copy of this book from Ms. Winslow in exchange for an honest review. She's an excellent writer - you should try her other books too!
