JANE AUSTEN AT HOME written and introduced by Lucy Worsley
Author Lucy Worsley reads the audiobook introduction to JANE AUSTEN AT HOME: A BIOGRAPHY.
On the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen's death, historian Lucy Worsley leads us into the world in which our best-loved novelist lived.
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. It wasn't all country houses and ballrooms, in fact her life was often a painful struggle.
Jane famously lived a 'life without incident', but with new research and insights Lucy Worsley reveals 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.
JANE AUSTEN AT HOME is now out in hardback, eBook and audiobook.
