Synopsis of The Jane Austen Book Society:
THE JANE AUSTEN SOCIETY by Natalie Jenner is a fictional tale of the start of the society in the 1940s in the village of Chawton, England, where Austen lived and wrote or revised her six famous novels.
There are eight main characters in the novel, all of whom are obsessed with Austen and conspire to create the society and turn the Austen cottage into a museum in her honor: a WWII war widow, a village doctor, a farmer and local handyman, a town solicitor, a house-girl on the Knight family estate, the anticipated heiress of that estate, an employee of Sotheby's, and a Hollywood actress.
Multiple social, romantic, and cultural collisions ensue. Jenner brings all of these disparate characters vividly to life, and you'll root for all of them to find their own happiness.
