About the Book
Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma…these titles conjure up a romantic world of rolling English countrysides, elegant balls, noble gentlemen, and headstrong gentlemen’s daughters. But how much do we know about the woman who immortalized those times and names like Mr. Darcy and Miss Elizabeth Bennett? Growing up in a clergyman’s home gave Jane Austen opportunities to watch human nature at its best–and worst. Drawing from historical sources as well as her own keen imagination, Christy Award-winner Nancy Moser transports readers inside the life and times of the literary world’s most beloved heroine. Known for her moving and unique Mozart’s Sister, Nancy Moser brings to life the mind and wit of Jane Austen–the loves, disappointments, and victories that shaped the novels that have remained popular for nearly two hundred years.
