Flynn, whose clever 2017 debut novel The Jane Austen Project sends a time-traveling team (think a modern Lizzie and Mr. Darcy) back to 1815 England to meet Austen and perhaps change the course of literary history."

"If you've always dreamed of reading a new Jane Austen novel, this book may be as close as you can get. In The Jane Austen Project, two people travel back in time to diagnose the author's fatal illness and steal her unfinished novel. In the year 1815, they struggle with societal expectations, imposed gender roles, and their growing feelings for one another."

"What is so impressive about this book is that it’s told in Rachel’s first person POV, with an American accent, but the vast majority of the dialogue is in varying British accents. The constant switching between accents is seamless and professional, and very helpful when it comes to figuring out who is speaking, what’s being said in dialogue, and what’s said in narration!"
