Summary

From the author of The Darcys of Pemberley comes a new story, straight out of the world of Jane Austen and told in a style reminiscent of her six classic novels. Set in nineteenth century Hampshire and Bath, For Myself Alone is the tale of Josephine Walker, a bright, young woman whose quiet life is turned upside-down by an unexpected inheritance. With a tempting fortune of twenty thousand pounds, she's suddenly the most popular girl in town. Yet Jo longs to be valued for who she is, not for her bank balance.

She cannot respect the men who pursue her for her money, and the only one she does admire is considered the rightful property of her best friend. Now, even the motives of her new fiance are suspect. Does he truly love her for herself alone? There's one sure, but extreme, way to find out…if Jo has the courage to take it. For Myself Alone will appeal to those who long for more Jane Austen, for more stories like the ones she told written in the elegant language of her time. Just for fun, the author has sprinkled lines from Jane Austen works throughout the audiobook for fans to find.

For myself alone

Great story, lovely clear reading.
The ending was no surprise but that is not dissimilar to Jane Austin’s stories.
I loved the phrases that were taken directly from Jane Austin’s novels and am sure that there were many more that I will find when I listen to it again.
