Summary Note Can a village in need find hope after the devastation of war? The Jane Austen Society is a fictional telling of the start of the society in the 1940s in the village of Chawton, where she lived. There are eight main characters, all of whom are obsessed with Austen and conspire to create the society and turn the Austen cottage into a museum in her honour: a WWII war widow, a Farmer, a village Doctor, a local Solicitor, a House-Girl in the Knight estate, the anticipated heiress of that estate, an employee of Sotheby's and a Hollywood Actress. Multiple social, romantic and cultural collisions ensue. Jenner brings all of these disparate characters vividly to life, and you'll root for all of them to find their own happiness.
