The Jane Austen Society by Natalie Jenner

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. One hundred and fifty years ago, Chawton was the final home of Jane  Austen, one of England’s finest novelists. Now it’s home to a few distant relatives and their diminishing estate. With the  last bit of Austen’s legacy threatened, a group of disparate individuals come together to preserve both Jane Austen’s  home and her legacy. As each of them endures their own quiet struggle with loss and trauma, some from the recent 

war, others from more distant tragedies, they rally together to create the Jane Austen Society. A powerful and moving  novel that explores the tragedies and triumphs of life, both large and small, and the universal humanity in us all.
