What do you think motivated the author to share his or her life story? James Edward Austen-Leigh is a distant relative of Jane Austen and I believe, much like he has said throughout the book, that his purpose was so people could know the real Jane Austen and share her more personal life and her journey in writing six very amazing books.

Share a favorite part of the book: My most favorite part of the book would probably be the never before published chapters from Persuasion and then a number of chapters from the last book Austen was writing before she died. It had no title and they weren’t even able to tell who the main focus was to be on, even though she had at least a dozen chapters completed.

How would you rate this book? Three and a half stars. 3.5/5
