in consequence of the missive, Not yet, penned by Myretta
I set this book aside after reading the first few chapters. I found the extensive detail rather boring. This might be a good book for those who haven't read a good many JA biographies. I may perhaps have read too many biographies, her letters, etc. to find this book new and interesting. References are made to the letters so this is not strictly a history book outside the realm of JA's actual world and reference is made to the specific locations where she lived and visited. It would appear to be a good book for those who haven't read much about JA.
