Jane Austen may be best known for her novels, but readers can get to know her best through the sparkling, often humorous letters she wrote during her lifetime. This curated collection of her surviving correspondence is arranged chronologically—from a 1796 missive about Jane's flirtation with the Irishman Tom Lefroy to her sister Cassandra's pensive musings in the weeks following Jane's 1817 death. Illustrated with drawings and etchings of the fashion and architecture that were en vogue during Austen's lifetime, landscapes featuring towns and houses where the author and her friends lived, family portraits, and other images to help readers create a mental vision of Jane Austen's life and world, this lovely "album" provides an insightful, multifaceted view of the beloved writer's life and personality.
