Who was the mysterious Jane Austen?
A quiet country girl who was fond of retail and romance and dancing at balls?
Or a strong-minded woman of war, empire and business, who chose to remain unmarried to independently write novels?
Jane penned six novels in her lifetime which were published anonymously and brought her little frame. Today she is regarded as one of England’s most celebrated authors. Her novels and subsequent film and television adaptations have turned her into a global superstar.
Now available on Amazon, Apple, Nook, Barnes and Noble, and your local bookstores.

Reviews from happy readers
“A well written book that transports you back in time to 2017 and makes you feel you were there for Jane’s 200th anniversary of her death. I loved the photographs inside that range from Jane’s birth record through to the words on her gravestone. You can also see photographs of her coat and purse, and other personal items you don’t really see. I can recommend it.” Jane Arden, Newport
