SYNOPSIS: The Stunning Finale to Jane Austen’s Saga. In the moving conclusion to “The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen,” Jane and her husband struggle with the serious illness of their son, confront a bitter relationship with the aristocratic family who were once their friends and face the horrific prospect of war when the British Army falters on the continent. The momentous events of the Napoleonic wars and the agonizing trials of their personal lives take Jane and Ashton to a decision that will decide their fate—and her future—once and for all.
In this third volume, the conclusion of the series trilogy of The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen, Collins Hemingway brings a beautiful end to the story of Jane and husband Ashton Dennis. This volume is the most heart wrenching, dark and most devastating. Without giving away the tragic details, the story is beautifully imagined on what Jane Austen's life might be during 1802-1809 where not much were chronicled and considered the "missing years". This volume does begin 4 months after Jane delivers a baby boy George at the age of 31 years old. This was also a time in England where there was political unrest and the Napoleonic war is upon them.
Collins Hemingway writes a masterful imagination that explores creative ingenuity of what would be like with Jane married with a child. The story delves with amazing detail of the intimate life of this famous writer of Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility and Northanger Abbey. As I was reading this, the beautiful prose and language, the historical detail and creativity transported me back to Austen's world where strong women with opinion were considered unimaginable. I could not put this book down and devoured it with so much joy and satisfaction. What an amazing book to read for any fans of Jane Austen, British Literature and Historical Fiction.
Hemingway again displays his notable ability to recreate time and place, moving on from the heady days of Jane Austen’s early love to a marriage beset by difficulties and a country at war. Hemingway … vividly and authentically portrays the times. … [T]his is a lively, compelling read, [a] sobering but moving finale to Hemingway’s successful trilogy. —BlueInk Review
Immensely satisfying … Marriage is lively, compelling, and fun. … [Her] relationship with her husband Ashton still sparkles. Marriage is a lovely ode to their connection. … Hemingway has combined Austen’s humanity with her fiction and created a Jane that lives and breathes on the page. Audiences will want her to be real… It offers a wonderful, imagined alternate life for the well-loved author. —Claire Foster, Foreword Review
‘Enjoyable … an imaginative, well-researched series.’ —Kirkus Reviews
