Eleanor is a costume designer in England for the Jane Austen festival, where her room at the inn is haunted. In the middle of the night she encounters two ghost sisters whose brother was killed in a duel over 200 years ago. They persuade her to travel back in time with them to prevent the duel. Eleanor is swept into a country house party, presided over by the charming Lord Shermont, where she encounters and befriends Jane Austen. But there's much more to Lord Shermont than the ghosts knew, and as Eleanor dances and flirts with him, she begins to lose her heart.


This book is about what so many of us would dearly love to do - travel back to Jane Austen's time to meet her and to experience that time period. This book was purely delightful! The problems the heroine encounters because of the differences in times are cute and funny. The story was enjoyable and fun to read. There was a great romance between Eleanor and Shermont. Although I thought the end was a bit predictable, I still enjoyed the story. The book is definitely a time travel book, so if you just don't like that type of fiction, this wouldn't be the book for you probably. Although it's not my favorite genre, I found the story to be intriguing enough that I almost forgot the time travel issue. All in all, I found this book to be a fun read.

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
