Latter-day Tales

The Latter-day Tales feature contemporary retellings of Jane Austen's classics. As the titles suggest, they are LDS fiction, and thus reflect the values of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. However, many people outside the church have enjoyed reading it.

The Deseret News wrote: Sense and Sensibility: A Latter-day Tale is more than a regurgitation of Austen’s classic. It’s almost a supplement meant to enrich an already wholesome, moving story about the strength of sisterhood and family." Read the whole review here

"Jamison's writing is engaging and full of vivid, amusing lines; a croissant is 'the cotton candy version of bread,' for instance. Jamison's religious perspective never comes off as awkward or didactic."--Publisher's Weekly

"While many modern Emma adaptations simply follow Austen’s story without adding much of a twist, Jamison made the story her own. Her characters have fire, high standards and flaws to pick apart."

Deseret News

"One of the best books I read last year."--Kaylee Baldwin, author of Meg's Melody

“This book kept me up until one o’clock.  I loved it.  Wonderful characters, fun story, and beautifully written.  Rebecca Jamison's characters will draw you in from the beginning and remind you that love really can last forever. .”—Rachael Renee Anderson, author of Minor Adjustments
