Nice and moving read.  Sep 13, 2009
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed reading this novel. I loved Moser's portrayal of Jane: courteous and sedate, but still lively and youthful; also not overly spiky and rebellious as to make it unbelievable, as other modern portrayals do. The first-person narrative makes this book easy and pleasant to read, and allows readers to vividly conjure images of what Miss Austen's life might have truly looked and felt like.

One of my favorite things about the novel was that Moser gives readers insight as to what kinds of things may have influenced Jane Austen's writing. For example: a parson named Mr. Blackall lays down the foundation for the character Mr. Collins of 'Pride and Prejudice,' and the ways in which Miss Austen and her sister Cassandra respond to various situations lead to the formation of Elinor and Marianne, and eventually 'Sense and Sensibility.'

This novel is also informative for a reader wishing to learn more about Miss Austen, her family, her different places of residence, and the formation of her novels. It is, all in all, a very touching and well-written book that I will definitely read more than once.
Absolutely Fantastic  Jun 5, 2009
Just Jane, what is there to say about this Nancy Moser Novel? Well I shall start by saying I loved it. I have always been a fan of Jane Austen, how can one not? The work speaks to everyone, and well I will say I am with millions of women I love Fitzwilliam Darcy, even before he was on film by Colin Firth. But as much as I love her works I will admit I didn't know much about Jane Austen as herself. Perhaps that is how she would have wanted it, as according to the portrayal by Moser; she was a woman who preferred to keep to herself. But you can not help but be sucked in when you read Just Jane.

It is a fictional account of Jane's life, but it stays as true to fact as possible (I have since been researching it's in my nature) and is written fantastically. We follow Jane through her life, her chances to marry that she declined, and her family's ups and downs we are there through it all. We see the good Jane and the bad Jane. She was a fantastic Aunt, but a very critical person. She enjoyed going to balls, and yet she couldn't stand most of the people either, a walking talking contradiction my kind of person!

If you know anything about Jane Austen anything at all, you will love this book. Nancy Moser does a fantastic job of telling the story of the woman who wanted to be alone and yet didn't. Who gave her life to her work. Her life was her work. And we will see bits of Jane in all of our favorite characters and some of her family too. And of course you will see just when her work was truly appreciated, while she was acclaimed well enough when the works came out it was not until the 1900's when she truly became appreciate for what we know her as today.
Nice read  Apr 11, 2009
I was annoyed at first that this was written in first person... but a few chapters in it won me over. It's a cleverly written review of Jane's life and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the author didn't address the end of Jane's life at all, and that was the part I was most interested to read about. Also, I wish there were more notes at the end telling us what was fact and what was fiction.
best biographical book i've read  Jan 8, 2009
An absolutely wonderful book! it contained everything I wanted to know about my beloved author, Jane Austen, her relationship to God, how her novels were related to real facts of her life. I also learned a lot about her era. It was well-written, down-to-earth and truly, truly beautiful.
i found out why she never married, how real people and members of her family inspired the exciting characters of her books. i feel i really know her after this book. Really excellent.

Just Right  Dec 31, 2008
It is universally known and accepted that when the men that when the men in her life failed to reach her expectations, Jane Austen created her own knight in shining armor known as "Mr. Darcy." "Just Jane" is a fictional narrative about the life of Jane Austen, beginning when she is in her early twenties, when she started to write on "First Impressions," which would later become her masterpiece "Pride and Prejudice." Jane is the younger daughter of a rector, whose expectation is to marry and have her own family, but her dream is to write. Her sister and closest confidant, Cassandra, offers her encouragement and moral support. The story follows Jane as she journeys through life, being thwarted in love by Tom Lefroy to moving to Bath, to rejecting the only marriage proposal offered to her, to losing her father and finally to being published. The story comes to a close after Jane's death and includes a historical note on Austen's own life. "Just Jane" wasn't what I originally expected. I was prepared for an Austen that was bitter, irreligious and feministic. Instead I found a brave woman who charted her own course in a male dominated world. Moser handled Jane's faith delicately; Austen was the daughter of an Anglican clergyman and didn't have much evangelical leanings, although she both admired and laughed at the evangelicals of her day. However, in this book, she was a Christian and trusted in God to guide her path.
Any Austen fan would enjoy this book and not be annoyed at the religious content. Those who enjoy this novel might also be interested to note that in June of 2009, another book by Moser will be published on Elizabeth Barret Browning, titled, "How Do I Love Thee?"
