The Jane Austen Society - Natalie Jenner, Richard Armitage

This is a lovely piece of writing about a small group of people and what they know and are able to feel and say about themselves and each other. It's clean, calm, character-driven prose that gets you inside the head of each of the main characters.


We see the world through their eyes, amplified by the different things each of them gets from reading Austen and the different things they see in Austen's characters.


There's a lot of grief and pain and awkwardness but there is also a backdrop of hope.
