    In the mid-19th century, a verger of Winchester Cathedral, puzzled by the number of visitors to Jane Austen's grave, asked 'Was there anything particular about this lady?' Drawing on a little-known diary, memoirs and letters, this book tells the story of Austen's life in her own words, and those of the people who knew her: her quiet rural existence as a parson's daughter, her development as a novelist - and the extraordinary posthumous growth of her literary fame.
