Out Now: The Austen Girls by Lucy Worsley

British historian Lucy Worsley does some great TV shows, but she is also the author of historical fiction aimed at young adult readers. I’ve mentioned one of her books before, but this one, about Jane Austen, is out today and looks really interesting. (It is already available in the UK.)

The Austen Girls by Lucy Worsley

Would she ever find a real-life husband?

Would she even find a partner to dance with at tonight’s ball? She just didn’t know. Anna Austen has always been told she must marry rich. Her future depends upon it. While her dear cousin Fanny has a little more choice, she too is under pressure to find a suitor. But how can either girl know what she wants? Is finding love even an option? The only person who seems to have answers is their Aunt Jane.

She has never married. In fact, she’s perfectly happy, so surely being single can’t be such a bad thing? The time will come for each of the Austen girls to become the heroines of their own stories. Will they follow in Jane’s footsteps? In this witty, sparkling novel of choices, popular historian LUCY WORSLEY brings alive the delightful life of Jane Austen as you’ve never seen it before.
