"An entertaining and readable biography... Plentiful photos and sketches of family friends and estates Austen visited.... Engaging, well-researched, serious introduction."--Booklist


"Le Faye shows connections between real and fictional people and places while imparting a clear sense of what life was like.... The illustrations, most in full color, are a plus: a well-chosen mix of contemporary portraits, reproductions of manuscripts and letters (including Austen's first rejection), street scenes, and maps.... Authoritative."--Kirkus Reviews

The volume is concise, serviceable, and authoritative."--Kirkus Reviews
