REVIEW of “Jane Austen and the Archangel” by Pamela Aares

Jane Austen and her novels are inspiration to hundreds of people aroung the world: writers, bloggers, actors, readers, etc. Therefore we could say that she is a bit of a goddess or at least she belongs to the heavens.

This is the idea that I got after reading Jane Austen and the Archangel. What if Miss Austen, after having loved Mr. Lefroy but nothing else, would have been able to find love again? From our modern perspective you may think; who is good enough for Jane Austen? Darcy and Knightley are already taken and are her characters. What if I tell you that Jane can only deserve someone who is heavenly, pure, celestial, glorious?

This is what Pamela Aares is showing on Jane Austen and the Archangel. Jane, Cassandra and their mother have moved to Chawton and Jane is not able to write at all. She is worried about the fact that her inspiration is gone but another worry that she has is related to her friend Serena, she is very unhappy as her parents want her to marry a scoundrel when she is still engaged to a man who is MIA in Spain for two years now.

The other main character is Michael, the Archangel, he has been punished for being a bit of a naughty angel and he encounters Jane Austen while in earth. Michael Grace is the letter carrier and he brings all Serena’s letters to Jane. One of Michael’s powers is to know anything that has been written. (As you may imagine, this is a powerful tool to have in that period and with JA.)

Michael and Jane see each other a couple of times when he brings the mail and one day he is invited to go into the house for tea. This is an important scene as it is when Michael offers his help to find Serena’s fiancé, Darcy. The feelings are very powerful for both of them. Jane tries to deny her feelings, she considered herself a spinster as she is 37. Micheal has never felt that way in all his eons. There is a connection between them but the one who is against anything is Jane as she is too stubborn to feel as she leaves feelings to her characters in her books.

I will not tell you much more as I want you to enjoy this heavenly love story and discover all the perks of being an angel but also all the disadvantages of not being a man to be with the woman you love. Will Jane have finally a happy ending? Will Serena’s fiancé come back to her? Are rules always correct or are they made to be broken? Will Jane Austen write again in this book?

A teaser:

He wished he could put her ar ease, but he was a bit nervous himself. (Jane Austen and the Archangel)

    1. I downloaded long time ago as it was free because the author sometimes put it free on Amazon. I hope you like it. On Amazon it has a few bad reviews but it depends on how you like what I mention about Jane Austen in need of an angel.
