Why The Jane Austen Society?
From the moment we stepped into the lives of the people of Chawton, England we were enamoured by their story, their connection and the stories buried deep in Jane Austen’s former home. A unique cast of characters brought together by their love of Austen and need for human connection. We think you will love this historical fiction debut from Canadian author Natalie Jenner. Whether you are fan of Austen or a reader of historical fiction there is something for everyone. At its centre, The Jane Austen Society is about love, loss, family and books. The perfect read for June.
