Behind Jane Austen's Door takes you on a tour of a Regency house, room by room, to explore these delicate challenges and the beautiful lives of Jane Austen's women.

Jane Austen did not place her stories in palaces or on the battlefields, but in that one building so important, then and now: the home.  The house, and lack of a home are key to Jane Austen’s novels. Marriage was more than just a romantic alliance for Elizabeth Bennet or Elinor Dashwood. It also meant a home of their own, and a valued role as mistress of the house and estate.

But to get that home, to secure that marriage, Jane Austen’s women had to walk a tightrope of social expectation, field off competitors and rise above their embarrassing family situation, all while remaining true to themselves.

MamaReadSoMuch Amazon Review
What a delight! If you are a Janeite then you surely enjoy Jane Austen's novels over and over and OVER again. This charming, short Kindle read is a look behind the scenes at how a Regency house, manor or cottage, is run! The floor plan is before you and you are escorted via the author through the rooms - sweetly told about the goings on of each room, their importance and what likely sort of discussion you would partake in when in such room(s). Great book to own to re-read from time to time as the background of the living situations during Jane's era is most fascinating to me.
