An excellent read

This book is so good.  I think what I love most about it is the letters.  Samantha Moore writes letters to Mr. Knightley. 

Here is the back cover teaser..."Sam is,  to say the least, bookish.  An English major of the highest order, her diet has always been Austen, Dickens, and Shakespeare.  The problem is, both her prose and conversation tend to be more Elizabeth Bennet than Samantha Moore.  But life for the twenty-three year old orphan is about to get stranger than fiction.  An anonymous, Dickensian benefactor (calling himself Mr. Knightley) offers to put Sam through Northwestern University's prestigious Medill School of Journalism.  There is only one catch:  Sam must write frequent letters to the mysterious donor, detailing her progress...."

There are quotes of English literature throughout the book.  Samantha just quotes them in dialogue!  This is one of those page turner books.  Again...excellent.  I give it 5 stars.  The author, Katherine Reay, won 2 awards last week at the ACFW conference in St Louis.  I can't wait for her next book to come out.  You can learn more about her and her journey at the web address below. 
Happy reading.
