Staff Reviews

The Jane Austen Society, by Natalie Jenner, is a lovely story that reads much like an Austen novel. A group of very different people, each dealing with loss and disappointment in post-WWII Chawton, England, are drawn together by their common love of Jane Austen’s books. They form the society to preserve the author’s final home and to provide a place for fans to visit. Through working together to overcome legal obstacles, they begin to learn about themselves and to see that there is hope after tragedy. These are characters you will grow to care for and wish to see succeed.

“Utterly and wonderfully charming! The residents of Chawton, England, who seem to have nothing in common, come together by their love for the writings of Jane Austen. They quickly come to realize that true friendship depends on nothing but a caring heart and the willingness and courage to be open to others. This is a book to read again and again whenever your faith in humanity is threatened.”
— Sandi Madore, Magnolia's Bookstore, Seattle, WA


Just after the Second World War, in the small English village of Chawton, an unusual but like-minded group of people band together to attempt something remarkable.
