Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict (by Laurie Viera Rigler)

A truly remarkable book. This again is a first novel for the author, Laurie Viera Rigler, who is a self professed Jane Austen addict.

Her book starts with the heroine, who is a 21st century woman living in Los Angeles, waking up in a strange home, surrounded by strangers, and in a different time - the time of Jane Austen's England. The story evolves, as does the character, to try to figure out why she is where (and when) she is, and how to get back to where she came from.

A wonderful book, well received by all, and most of us are now looking forward to the sequel, which is currently underway!!

Laurie Viera Rigler called into our meeting, and visited with us for about 90 minutes. It was so much fun to visit with her. She had some interesting responses to our takes on the book, and was so down to earth.

This meeting was held at Rebecca's home in Phoenix, where we hovered around the speaker phone so we could all participate.
