Presenting Miss Jane Austen

Author: May Lamberton Becker
Genre: Life
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8
Type: Biography
Number of pages: 204
Time period: 1800’s
My overall opinion: I enjoyed it! It was one of those biographies that you occasionally come across where it’s quite short, but well-written and interesting. I found it interesting how they kind of underplayed Jane’s liking for Tom Lefroy. It very much implied that she never really loved anyone – but according to other biographies I’ve read, she liked him a lot! So that was interesting. Other than that, I enjoyed it a lot!

I love this book. I found it a home-school conference a few years ago and grabbed it; it quickly became a favorite of mine!
