Jane Austen: A Life Revealed - Catherine Reef ARC received from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt through NetGalley.I am not a Jane Austen specialist (my sister is), so I enjoyed reading this biography.Catherine Reef's writing was nice, telling us deatils about Jane's daily life, her family and friends relationships, their lifestyles and hardships. The chapters were intercalated with a summary of each of Austen's novels, as well as thoughts and comments about the readers' reactions.The pictures and illustrations presented in the book are lovely.I'd recommend this book for anyone, young or old, who wants to know a bit more about the "mysterious" Jane Austen and her novels.
