Product description

Review

This is my kind of history: carefully researched but so vivid that you are convinced Lucy Worsley was actually there at the party - or the parsonage. (Antonia Fraser)

Jane Austen at Home offers a fascinating look at Jane Austen's world through the lens of the homes in which she lived and worked throughout her life. The result is a refreshingly unique perspective on Austen and her work and a beautifully nuanced exploration of gender, creativity, and domesticity. (Amanda Foreman)

A vivid portrait of Jane Austen. A must for any Austenite. (Red magazine)

Brilliant and very moving, this book is a fascinating and original exploration of Jane Austen with lots of new material - Worsley brings Austen to life superbly, through her pages she is a flesh and blood woman, intelligent, powerful, contradictory, loving, loved. A magnificent book. (Kate Williams)

Rarely, if ever, will you encounter a historian so in command of their material. Truly, this is a dazzling exercise in persuasion, written with sense and sensibility. (Saturday Express)

Book Description

Easily digestible. Lucy has put her own special brand of writing into this book. It has closed gaps in my own knowledge. l have visited Bath and Chawton and Winchester many times, wonderful places.

Following my latest reread of Emma, I intended to reread Claire Tomalin's excellent biography, and stumbled upon this instead. I can safely say I have never read a biography so quickly, with the"story" bowling along like a work of fiction. It even made me cry at the end, despite it being horribly inevitable. Lucy Worsley is an unapologetic Janeite, and I loved every minute of it. Will certainly be looking out for other books, and am also inspired to visit some more of Jane's haunts, aided by the brilliant detail in the book.

Just finished reading this. Very readable - and an interesting new perspective on the way that Jane Austen's various homes and events and characters in her life crept almost unnoticed into her novels.
