Hemingway again displays his notable ability to recreate time and place, moving on from the heady days of Jane Austen's early love to a marriage beset by difficulties and a country at war. Hemingway ... vividly and authentically portrays the times. ... [T]his is a lively, compelling read, [a] sobering but moving finale to Hemingway's successful trilogy. --BlueInk Review
Immensely satisfying ... Marriage
is lively, compelling, and fun. ... [Her] relationship with her husband Ashton still sparkles. Marriage
is a lovely ode to their connection. ... Hemingway has combined Austen's humanity with her fiction and created a Jane that lives and breathes on the page. Audiences will want
her to be real.... It offers a wonderful, imagined alternate life for the well-loved author. --Claire Foster, Foreword Review
