By a Lady

A tale of time travel, true love, and Jane AustenNew York actress C.J. Welles, a die-hard Jane Austen fan, is on the verge of landing her dream role: portraying her idol in a Broadway play. But during her final audition, she is mysteriously transported to Bath, England, in the year 1801. And Georgian England, with its rigid and unforgiving social structure and limited hygienic facilities, is not quite the picturesque costume drama C.J. had always imagined.Just as she wishes she could click her heels together and return to Manhattan, C.J. meets the delightfully eccentric Lady Dalrymple, a widowed countess who takes C.J. into her home, introducing her as a poor relation to Georgian societyincluding the dashing Earl of Darlington and his cousin, Jane Austen!When a crisis develops, C.J.in a race against timebecomes torn between two centuries. An attempt to return to her own era might mean forfeiting her blossoming romance with the irresistible Darlington and her growing friendship with Jane Austen, but its a risk she must take. And in the midst of this remarkable series of events, C.J. discovers something even more startlinga secret from her own past that may explain how she wound up in Bath in the first place.From the Trade Paperback edition.
