The Compleat Jane 21 Jan. 2007
By egreetham - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A literate, entertaining, complete, and unsentimentalized account of Jane Austen and her family, nuclear and extended. The Austens and the Leighs (Jane's mother's family) were both numerous and well-connected; their relationships are detailed in an unequalled series of family trees. Ms. Le Faye has written about Jane Austen many times, and knows her stuff. If I were limited to one source of information on Miss Austen, A Family Record is the one I'd pick.

The Last Book 22 Feb. 2011
By C. E. Anderson - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love Jane Austen, her letters, novels and most of the biographies. This was the last bio I read and it answered just about all my questions about Jane Austen. Deirdre Le Faye is the BEST Jane Austen information source.
