Overview

This detailed and engaging account of Austen's life and work is arranged as a series of walking tours through the towns and countryside she knew and loved -- the settings for her novels. We are introduced to the real-life people she met on her journeys, many of whom live on, thinly disguised, as the characters in her books. The country houses, churches, great estates and elegant cities she knew have changed surprisingly little in the course of two centuries.
