Anyone who is interested in Jane Austen's life should approach this book with the understanding that it was written by her great-nephew and his nephew. There's a noticeable effort to portray "Aunt Jane" as sweet, even-tempered, loving, and almost saint-like. Don't expect any insight into Austen's work or jarring revelations about her life. The letters themselves are mundane to the point of being boring. Unless you're a true Janeite, stick with her novels - you'll enjoy them much more than this memoir.

I so enjoyed all the details of Jane Austen, her family and her heritage? Learning about her gives you an intamacy into the author that you haven't gotten in her writings alone. Thank you for putting together such personal knowledge of our beloved author, and one of my personal favorites.
