Everybody should marry once for love—
even Jane Austen

When Jane Austen said that everybody has the right to marry once in their lives for love, did she include herself? And how would this singular spirit deal with the complexities of marriage at a time in history that could be both exhilarating but also cruel to women?

The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen reimagines the life of England’s archetypal female by exploring what might have happened if she had ever married. It shows how a meaningful, caring relationship would have changed her as a person and a writer.

This novel is the first set in Regency times to delve deeply into the psyche of a woman as she opens her heart to a true attachment with a man as independent, as passionate, and as complicated as she is herself.

In such times, can love—can marriage—triumph?
