The book is getting very nice reviews, for example Joceline Bury of Jane Austen’s Regency World said:
Time-travel romance has become a popular and successful sub-genre of historical romantic fiction, giving writers every opportunity to place their characters in situations that test their affections not only across barriers of class and education, but also across centuries. O’Rourke handles the ensuing conflicts with humour and sensitivity.
Her portrayal of the young stableboy transported from 19th century Chawton to a 21st century stud farm is delightfully handled – as is the relationship between Fitz and Jane herself.
She creates a world that defies cynicism and demands suspension of disbelief – even in this age of doubt and hyper-realism. Sheer escapism at its best.
Clever, charming and affectionate – is the real Mr. Darcy unmasked?
Janet Taylor of More Agreeably Engaged gave it 5 out of 5 stars
Yours Affectionately, Jane Austen is a touching and lovely fantasy. I will not be forgetting this book any time soon as I was profoundly moved.
Amy wrote on Amazon: 5 Stars!
Sally Smith O’Rourke once again charms us back in time to the world of Jane Austen in her sequel to The Man Who Loved Jane Austen. Sally’s gift for beautiful details and descriptions makes the reader feel as though they have stepped through time and are observers of the story as it unfolds. Yours Affectionately, Jane Austen is a delightful read and is not to be missed. Read it with joy and expectation!
In Yours Affectionately, Jane Austen, author Sally Smith O’Rourke creates a compelling story that investigates what and who might have inspired Jane Austen. While the story line is certainly far-fetched, it is a truly unique idea, one that captivated this reader until the very last page. O’Rourke creates an Austen to whom we can really relate; one of humility, charm and inspiring talent. And one can see why Fitz Darcy so inspired Miss Austen to create a hero that would romance women in every generation since the novel’s creation. If you enjoy Austen-esque fiction, you are sure to love this unique, romantic novel.
