A Lasting Love Affair

Jane Austen

Since her first novel was published in 1811, Jane Austen has delighted readers with her beautifully crafted, satirical tales of Regency-era romance. Her elegant world of courtly balls, carriage rides and country houses offers an escape from modern worries while her heroines’ search for love and happiness continues to strike a chord with readers around the world. Over the centuries translations of her books into more than 40 different languages, and dozens of popular film and TV adaptations, have created a lasting love affair with her life and works that we still celebrate today.
