Entertaining speculation about an author whose life is a lot less known than you'd expect given how popular her work is in English Lit. classes!
Publisher's blurb: "Many rumors abound about a mysterious gentleman said to be the love of Jane's lifeâ��finally, the truth may have been found....
"What if, hidden in an old attic chest, Jane Austen's memoirs were discovered after hundreds of years? What if those pages revealed the untold story of a life-changing love affair? That's the premise behind this spellbinding novel, which delves into the secrets of Jane Austen's life, giving us untold insights into her mind and heart.
"Jane Austen has given up her writing when, on a fateful trip to Lyme, she meets the well-read and charming Mr. Ashford, a man who is her equal in intellect and temperament. Inspired by the people and places around her, and encouraged by his faith in her, Jane begins revising Sense and Sensibility, a book she began years earlier, hoping to be published at last."
