4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth reading, 23 Oct. 2010
This review is from: Eliza's Daughter: A Sequel to Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility (Paperback)
I am constantly on the lookout for well written and well researched historical fiction and I have a particular affection for the novels of Jane Austen and in this book I think that I have found a book well worth reading.
I particularly liked the way in which the story does not follow a predictable pattern but establishes the character of Eliza in her own, difficult and challenging, milieu.
The author's use of language is good and unlike so many of the Austen sequels she does not use modern idiom which so spoils the books of many authors.
In its own right it is a good and well written story and with the added interest of familiar characters from Sense and Sensibility, it is a most enjoyable read.
The characters for the most part are seen in a very different light to what we may expect and this helps to establish this book as a solid piece of fiction.
My only disappointment is that it is too short!
I recommend this book to those who share a love of Austen and who enjoy reading well written historical fiction.
