For Myself Alone: A Jane Austen Inspired Novel by Shannon Winslow
3.0 out of 5 stars Jane Austen inspired!, 31 Mar 2014
This was a pleasant book to read and I quite enjoyed it, but it lacked the subtlety and intrigue that Jane Austen brings to a story, and the outcome was all too obvious right from the beginning.
The manners of the period and the ballroom scenes were all there, but it lacked the depth and richness of description to bring it to life.
It was a light and pleasant read if you just wanted a romantic period novel.
