    Jane Austen was a clergyman's daughter, related to other clergy, born and brought up in a parsonage, and many of the attitudes expressed in her novels reflect this directly or indirectly. In this full- length biography, Irene Collins pays particular attention to Austen's early life and influences in order to understand 'the depth and spontaneity of her religious commitment', and presents the novelist as a woman whose 'lively and practical' religion enhanced her understanding of human nature.
