About "Carolyn V. Murray"

  1. Carolyn V. Murray

    Carolyn V Murray spent her childhood with the proverbial nose inside a book between Encyclopedia Brown, the Laura Ingalls Wilder saga, A Wrinkle in Time, etc she could not start the next book soon enough At the age of eleven, she approached a librarian and asked to see books on how to become a writer The librarian was amused, and Carolyn was NOT happy to be the source of this amusement It would be a couple decades before she really believed that writing was her destiny.Her 9 5 life included the good teaching the bad working in casinos and the ugly catering in an electric clown suit Her writing path took a long detour into the pursuit of screenwriting, where she got selected as a Walt Disney Writing Fellow, had four original screenplays optioned, and wrote one freelance script that made it to the TV screen.But these days, she s a lot excited about creating the kinds of books that sustained her childhood She is drawn to history, biography, love stories, and travel Jane by the Sea is her first novel.

  1. This review was first posted on Babblings of a Bookworm babblingsofabookworm.Jane Austen is possibly the world s best known romantic novelist not that I would call her a romantic novelist, but that label is often applied to her We know that she didn t marry but that she did have some brushes with romance herself There was an attraction towards Tom Lefroy, who was the nephew of Jane s close friend and neighbour, Madame Lefroy, which came to nothing after his family intervened, wanting him to marr [...]


  2. I love stories about Jane Austen s characters and retellings of her stories, but I also love fictional stories about her own life It is a work of fiction, but the author put the time in to quote Jane from her letters and place her in situations and with people around her that really happened In the gaps, she speculated knowledgeably and the choices she made in the story fit what is know from Jane s life I was engaged with the story and had strong emotional responses.The story gives a glimpse of [...]


  3. Jane Austen s love stories are timeless romances sprinkled with endless wit and intriguing characters Where did Jane find her inspiration for such romance and characters when she herself was never married Carolyn V Murray takes inspiration from little known facts about Jane s summer spent in the Seaside town of Sidmouth and imagines Jane s intense love affair with Royal Navy Lieutenant Frederick Barnes Jane s father is a clergyman who has fallen on hard times Jane is now a daughter with poor pro [...]


  4. JANE BY THE SEA is apparently Carolyn V Murray s first novel and what an accomplished book it is She really nails Jane Austen s voice and I adored the way that she imagines the evolution of Jane Austen s greatest works as springing from Austen s own direct experiences in life and love Murray s Jane feels both authentic to the time period and simultaneously utterly contemporary I recommend JANE BY THE SEA wholeheartedly It s a novel that not only will appeal to Austen fans around the world, but o [...]


  5. Gentle Readers Everywhere, I have met on my kindle the new Jane Austen and her name is Carolyn V Murray If you think this is just another JA fan fiction not that there s anything wrong , you are in for a treat Part biography and part historical fiction, this book is beautifully crafted from beginning to end One of the many amazing aspects of the book is how the author convincingly conveys how the events in Austen s life change and shape her as a writer But the writing itself is exquisite, and fo [...]


  6. I think Carolyn did a great job capturing Jane Austen I think Jane by the Sea was well written It s sweet without being sappy and Jane still manages to come across with enough spice and wit to keep you smiling.


  7. Oh, how I loved this book My husband gave it to me as Christmas present, and I read it in less than 2 days Carolyn Murray has an excellent flare for making the reader feel as though they know Jane The romance is alive with reality and hope No spoilers, I promise What a gem of a book.


  8. The author sent a copy of this book to the library, where I m employed, as a gift As a fan of Jane Austen s writing that era, I was eager to read this novel Carolyn V Murray does not disappoint with this lovely work of historical fiction It captured my attention at page two of the prologue and held me hostage until the final page.The book reads much like a short memoir, written as if by Jane Austen, herself It took me from my little farm in South Dakota to a world miles away and years ago This n [...]


  9. Lovely written story, I think the author captured Jane s personality well or at least what the common perception of her personality is It kept me entertained throughout and I especially enjoyed the relationship between Jane and her sister Cassie I recommend it for Austen enthusiasts, it suggests a somewhat different cheeky origin of the stories of Sense Sensibility and Pride Prejudice I wonder if it was when Jane s heart was broken for the second time that she decided to always have a happy endi [...]


  10. How I loved this book Instead of portraying dear Jane as a pious spinster, she is re imagined here as a plucky, charming young woman with dreams beyond her set station in life Yes, it is another imagining of Jane s love life, but this one is well done I loved the interplay between both of Jane s beaus in this story and how sisters, while loving to one another, actually acted like real siblings Best of all, was the hidden thoughts that one can only guess during this little known time in Jane Aust [...]


  11. A fictionalised account of Jane Austen while staying with her family at Sidmouth, and meeting a Lieutenant Frederick Barnes.
