""Jane Austen at Home offers a fascinating look at Jane Austen's world through the lens of the homes in which she lived and worked throughout her life. The result is a refreshingly unique perspective on Austen and her work and a beautifully nuanced exploration of gender, creativity, and domesticity." - Amanda Foreman, bestselling author of Georgianna, Duchess of Devonshire. On the eve of the two hundredth anniversary of Jane Austen's death, take a trip back to her world and the many places she lived as historian Lucy Worsley visits Austen's childhood home, her schools, her holiday accommodations, the houses - both grand and small - of the relations upon whom she was dependent, and the home she shared with her mother and sister towards the end of her life. In places like Steventon Parsonage, Godmersham Park, Chawton House and a small rented house in Winchester, Worsley discovers a Jane Austen very different from the one who famously lived a 'life without incident'. Worsley examines the rooms, spaces and possessions which mattered to her, and the varying ways in which homes are used in her novels as both places of pleasure and as prisons. She shows readers a passionate Jane Austen who fought for her freedom, a woman who had at least five marriage prospects, but - in the end - a woman who refused to settle for anything less than Mr. Darcy. Illustrated with two sections of color plates, Lucy Worsley's Jane Austen at Home is a richly entertaining and illuminating new book about one of the world's favorite novelists and one of the subjects she returned to over and over in her unforgettable novels: home"--… (més)

While I enjoy reading Jane Austen's novels - this biography of the author was not my cup of tea. ( )

Note: I received a digital review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.

A fairly conventional biography, relying upon other biographies, and emphasising Austen’s homes, as apparent from the title. The book starts quite drily as Worsley explains family relationships and backgrounds, but this quickly transitions to excellent popular history, engagingly written, humorous at times and very enlightening.

This biography of the incomparable Jane Austen is center around her life at home and the places she considered to be home. Lucy Worsley's writing style in this book is light and chatting (it's clear how much she loves Jane and her novels), making for a fun reading and clarity into what her take on Jane's life is. I appreciated the details about Jane's family, her spurned suitors, and the aspects of her life that made it into her famous novels. Overall, a good read for Austen fans and those seeking to better understand Austen and her era. ( )

But at least here we have some evidence, lacking from earlier years, that it had become agreed that Jane would be excused household duties. It sounds like a tiny thing -- and indeed it was -- but a tiny trickle of water gradually hollows out a stone. Jane's ducking out of the housework in order to write would lead inexorably onwards, upwards, towards women working, to women winning power in a world of men. This is the significance of trying to reconstruct the detail of Jane Austen's daily life.
