ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- This is part of the Austen Project, whereby Austen’s wonderful novels will be retold by modern authors. Usually I run a mile from these things, but I have to admit I loved this sparkling recreation! Using the same names and characters and places, Trollope channels the story into contemporary settings. That it works so well is as much a tribute to her skill as it is to the timeless observations of Jane Austen. If you want proof that human nature and concerns remain largely unchanged from centuries ago, you could do no better than this enjoyable and entertaining homage! Lindy
