About the Reader:
Orlagh Cassidy made her Broadway debut with Frank Langella in Present Laughter and was nominated for a Drama Desk Award for her performance in The Field. Her film credits include Purple Violets, Definitely Maybe, and Spinning Into Butter. Orlagh can be seen on the television soap Guiding Light.
Here's what Publisher's Weekly had to say about the audiobook:
Orlagh Cassidy is delightfully fun as Courtney Stone, a modern Los Angeles girl nursing a heartbreak who wakes up to find herself inhabiting the body and life of a Jane Austenesque Regency girl. Cassidy is spot-on with Courtney's California accent, modern-day moaning about men, self-analysis and doubt, and sarcasm—and then, without missing a beat, flips easily into the proper, upper-class English tones of Jane (the Regency girl Courtney has replaced, whose accent came with the body), her pompous, controlling mother, her desperate suitor and her sympathetic best friend. Orlagh's lively narration makes Courtney even more endearing and brings the colorful story to life. Fans of Austen, chick lit, and romantic comedies should definitely put this one on their listening list. (Audio Reviews: Week of 11/23/07)
