The first official book review of my novel A Modern Day Sense and Sensibility is now available on the Austenesque Reviews website!

Meredith, the lovely lady behind Austenesque, posted her thought-provoking and complimentary review for visitors to read. Check it out! It’s so exciting to have my novel featured and to get feedback about it! Thank you, Meredith!

A round of applause to Kaitlin Saunders for stepping up to the challenge of modernizing Sense and Sensibility, which in my opinion, is one of the most daunting of Jane Austen’s novels to modernize! So many of the situations and conflicts in this novel do not have the same significance or consequences in our contemporary world as they did in Jane Austen’s. Engaged to a girl you are no longer in love with? (break up with her, it won’t cause a scandal!) About to be disinherited by your wealthy aunt? (get a job, stop being lazy!) I commend Kaitlin Saunders for taking on such a challenging feat!
