I declare! Willoughby returns!

Well, at least we know the reunion is under the care of a trusted friend, i.e. Jane Odiwe, whose book Willoughby's Return shall be published tomorrow on November 1.

Here’s a bit of blurb from the publisher Sourcebooks.

A lost love returns, rekindling forgotten passions… In Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility, when Marianne Dashwood marries Colonel Brandon, she puts her heartbreak over dashing scoundrel John Willoughby in the past. Three years later, Willoughby's return throws Marianne into a tizzy of painful memories and exquisite feelings of uncertainty. Willoughby is as charming, as roguish, and as much in love with her as ever. And the timing couldn't be worse—with Colonel Brandon away and Willoughby determined to win her back, will Marianne find the strength to save her marriage, or will the temptation of a previous love be too powerful to resist?


Jane Odiwe is also doing a blog tour and to celebrate publication there will be giveaways, competitions to win books and paintings, plus interviews over the next couple of weeks – information on Jane's blog: Jane Austen's Sequels.

I personally would love to read it. I have the feeling I know what the end shall be... but I want to know how Jane makes it work...

Hi Icha, Rachel and everyone at Becoming Jane blog.
Thank you for the lovely mention-I'm dying to know how you think it will turn out!

Oh Jane I am so excited. For some strange reason Marianne's heartbreak over Willoughby has always remained the closest to my own heart in comparison to the other Austen love stories. I think it is perhaps because I feel closer to Marianne as a character. Anyway I cannot wait to read this book.

Thank you Rachel - it's a book that I couldn't wait to write! There are competitions to win prizes on my blog over the next couple of weeks and a chance to win a copy of the book. Look out for my blog tour - several blogs are also giving away copies. Today I'm on Everything Victorian Blogspot.
