Narrator Justine Eyre meets all the challenges of author Rachel Cohen's unique memoir, which recounts her deep reading of Jane Austen's novels, undertaken during times of great personal transition: marriage, motherhood, moving, and mourning. Eyre subtly shades her delivery with humor, grief, and wonder, bridging the gap between listener and author. The pieces in this audiobook mix literary analysis about Austen's familiar characters and plots with the complexities of Cohen's family life, especially her coming to terms with the death of her beloved father. Eyre captures Cohen's enthusiasm for literary examination as well as the many layers of her grief and thoughts about death and her father's legacy. Listeners do not need to be Austen aficionados to relate to this well-told personal journey. C.B.L. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2020]
