This book was exactly what I expected: fun! Actually, I was quite impressed by the amount of detail Rigler put into her book: everything from language mannerisms, to technological discoveries and reactions to customs and habits - she does a great job at creating an authentic experience which is both believable and amusing right down to the amnesia and reincarnation phenomena. There were definitely a few lapses which throw off the reader (Jane is, apparently, a fast learner). However, these are fairly rare. I also liked the parallel of eras regarding views toward marriage: not much changed it would seem and certainly not to advantage of women. A light heart-warming tale.
