Jane in Love

What if Jane Austen travelled to the present day... and fell in love?

When Jane Austen time-travels to the present day and falls in love with a modern day man, all her books begin disappearing from the shelves. Ultimately, she must decide between staying in the present, where she's found love, or returning to her own time, where she will become Jane Austen.

Praise for Jane in Love:

'Artfully written and engaging, a lively effusion of wit and humour,'

Graeme Simsion, New York Times-bestselling author of The Rosie Project ​

‘A superb idea, with a strong female lead and a tense dilemma at its heart.’ 

Caroline Overington, double Walkley Award-winner and bestselling author

‘The premise of Jane Austen time-travelling and having to choose between her books and real love is touching and resonant, funny and tragic. And very clever.’

 Posie Graeme-Evans, bestselling author and creator of McLeod's Daughters

‘A charming, witty romantic comedy in which Jane Austen time-travels to the future and falls in love.’ 

Monica McInerney, bestselling author

‘A genuinely funny, feel-good read, as well as deeply moving,’ 

Sunday Times

The Age​

Book of the Month: Rachel Givney’s ‘Jane in Love’

Ausrom Today

‘Delightful modern-day re-imagining of Jane Austen, full of rich and nuanced characters… all the charm and wit we love about Austen in a gorgeous modern-England setting. Fun, delightful and completely entertaining,’

Better Reading

'Givney works contrasts between the two time periods into the plot that will inspire contemplation or discussion involving changes in family and romantic relationships, the intricate balance of a woman’s choices and how society determines her worth, and the inequitable impacts of aging on men and women.

An engaging blend of thoughtful topics and funny moments, cleverness and charm, this is a must-read for Janeites, those wondering what the fuss is about Austen, and all readers who like lively, smart, and provocative fiction.'
