As a devoted Jane Austen fan, I was hesitant to read a “modern retelling”. The only inducement was its author, the award winning Alexander McCall Smith (of “The No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency” series as well as many other series). I was not disappointed. Mr McCall Smith kept the spirit and flavor of the original but in a current mode. I can’t wait to read more modern retellings of Jane Austen’s other novels being planned by Pantheon Books.
