I hesitated when I realized this book was a collection of letters, because I usually do not enjoy this style. But when read the first few pages on Amazon, I liked their style and decided to take the risk. I found it delightful for two reasons: the first is that the author captured the personalities of the characters as created by Jane Austen perfectly. So many authors feel free to alter them so much if you did not know it was a "variation" you would not recognize the characters except by their names. I like the stories that broaden the personalities by adding events, thoughts, and interactions that allow us to better appreciate them, but not change them materially.
The second thing I liked was the breezy accounting of the lives of those we have learned to love as family. I find myself crying at the death of Mr. Bennett, worrying about the future, if any, of little Sarah Jane, and how Jane and Lizzy, and their servants, will be able to cope with Mrs. Bennett.
I recommend this book only for those with an intimate knowledge of the original characters, because those who do not know the "back stories" will not understand the hidden meanings, and sometimes pain, behind the mostly cheerful letters. In addition, I found few instances of poor proofreading and editing, but I do wish authors of this genre would learn when to use "me" instead of "I."
