"The most brilliant Austen-adjacent book on the market...Flynn's style makes this a quick, fun read, and since the story is Jane-related there's even a romantic subplot."
"Kathleen Flynn spins an entertaining story of time travel, complicated romantic connections and Austenalia in her debut novel, The Jane Austen Project...Witty, well-researched and thought-provoking, Flynn's debut is a fun and unusual addition to the canon of Austen tributes and pastiche." -- Shelf Awareness
"Written in an engaging Austen style, full of witty dialogue, a secret engagement, and a delightful clan of loving siblings" -- Booklist
"What lover of literature hasn't dreamed of going back in time to meet Jane Austen? In her debut novel, Kathleen A. Flynn brings this dream to life, creating a vivid portrait of Regency England in all its glory and squalor. Flynn illuminates the stark contrasts between that era and our own, and movingly depicts the heartbreak of those who might try to travel between the two." -- Lauren Belfer, author of After the Fire and A Fierce Radiance
"The Jane Austen Project is clever, captivating, and original. I loved it and couldn't put it down! It's been a long time since I've been so engrossed in a novel, or lost so much sleep reading it. Who wouldn't want to travel back in time and meet Jane Austen? Flynn's depiction of Jane Austen is wonderful, exactly as I imagine she must have been. The ending is a shocker and one of the strengths of the novel. It presents a view of time travel--and history--you won't soon forget. A keeper on my Austen shelf." -- Syrie James, author of Jane Austen's First Love
"I loved The Jane Austen Project. Brilliantly written and a must-read for any Jane Austen fan!" -- Paula Byrne, author of The Real Jane Austen
