Searching for Mr. Tilney is a lovely story of young love, discovery and flashes into the past. As Northanger Abbey is the foundation for this story line, I can't help but think of Pride and Prejudice as well, my favorite of Jane Austen's.
For anyone who loves Jane Austen and Jane Odiwe's novels, do not miss this wonderful tale. I highly recommend it!
The words flow across the pages with the light touch of a watercolour for our senses, one moment wrapping us in the nostalgia of 1970s Britain, the next sweeping us effortlessly into the past.
Filled with echoes of Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey (how could it not be, with such a title?), the story centres around Caroline Heath, a college design student who has been unwell and forced to rest. Out of boredom, she begins to keep a diary and, as the story begins, some kindly neighbours offer to take her to Bath with them for six weeks in order to aid her recuperation.
She begins recording her experiences there but then by chance she comes across a hidden journal by an unknown hand from long ago. It is not long before she realises she is reading Jane Austen’s teenage thoughts and experiences, and as she continues to absorb these, she is swept into the past and becomes part of this story too.
Entwined within this is a growing romance for Caroline, again with nods to Northanger Abbey, as she searches for her own Mr Tilney in the present day, along with a trail of clues connecting the past and the present around a mysterious portrait.
Beautifully rendered, this is not just a romance for the soul, but also a delicious slice of nostalgia, history and mystery. Well done, Ms Odiwe! You never disappoint!
