Description
Information
On the eve of the bi-centenary of Jane Austen's death, step back into the world in which our best-loved novelist lived. Historian Lucy Worsley visits Jane Austen's childhood home, her schools, her holiday accommodation, the houses both grand and small of the relations upon whom she was dependent, and the home she shared with her mother and sister towards the end of her life, where she wrote her many of her famous novels.

This new telling of the story of Jane's life shows us how and why she lived as she did, examining the rooms, spaces and possessions which mattered to her, and the way in which home is used in her novels to mean both a place of pleasure and a prison. Jane famously lived a 'life without incident', but with new research and insights Lucy Worsley will reveal a passionate woman who fought for her freedom. A woman who far from being a lonely spinster in fact had at least five marriage prospects, but who in the end refused to settle for anything less than Mr Darcy.
