Summary
Spence draws from family accounts and diaries to construct this biography of Jane Austen in a tone that nods to that author's attention to the seemingly smallest affairs in her characters' society, business, family, and love lives. Positing that Austen's friendship with Irish lawyer Tom Lefroy inspired her love stories, Spence also illustrates the financial and personal circumstances among Austen and her siblings and acquaintances that so informed her work.
