A Regency Romp - and Time Travel!,
This review is from: Searching For Captain Wentworth (Paperback)
Searching For Captain Wentworth is a new departure for Jane Odiwe. In this sparkling new novel, she takes the reader on a journey into the past, seen through the eyes of modern heroine and Austen addict, Sophie Elliot.
Sophie, on the rebound from a disastrous love affair, is mysteriously transported into Jane Austen's time. In the body of her ancestor, Sophia, she even meets her idol Jane, her sister Cassandra, and their handsome brother Charles, a naval officer.
Searching for Captain Wentworth is really two love stories - one between Sophie and her new, handsome friend Josh - and one between Sophia and... but I don't want to give too much of the plot away.
Jane Odiwe is clearly at home in the period, and Austen fans will find much to enjoy in her meticulous recreation of the glittering world of Regency Bath and Lyme Regis - the setting for Persuasion.
Will Sophie find true love and a fairytale ending? Or will her time travels jeapordise her happiness - and that of her ancestor Sophia?
