Take a trip back to Jane Austen's world and the many places she lived as historian Lucy Worsley visits Austen's childhood home, her schools, her holiday accommodations, the houses - both grand and small - of the relations upon whom she was dependent, and the home she shared with her mother and sister towards the end of her life.

this book is very engaging with a mix of History , antidotes and very well-researched content. I'm not a Jane Austin novel reader but I started watching movies and series of her work and this book was a great help in putting everything in context of the time
