Jane Austen at Home - A biography. Lucy Worsley book
Limited edition copies signed by Lucy Worsley
On the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen's death, historian Lucy Worsley leads us into the rooms from which our best-loved novelist quietly changed the world.
This new telling of the story of Jane's life shows us how and why she lived as she did, examining the palaces and spaces that mattered to her. It wasn't all the country houses and ballrooms, but a life that 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 is 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.
Lucy Worsley is an historian, author, curator and television presenter. Lucy read history at New college, Oxford and worked for English Heritage before becoming Chief Curator at the charity Historic Royal Palaces. She also presents history programmes for the BBC and is the author of several bestselling books.
