Jane Austen is known as the beloved author of Pride and Prejudice, Emma, and other witty and romantic novels. What is less known is that Jane was a deeply religious person.
She wrote beautiful, heartfelt prayers to read with her family. She was devoted to God, and for the first time you can read Jane’s original prayers in her neat handwriting that she wrote over 200 years ago.
In this celebratory book, Emma Darlington explores Jane Austen’s faith and the effect it had on Jane’s upringing and her novel writing. See photographs of Jane’s topaz cross given to her by her brother, the marriage register she playfully wrote in, and the places she worshipped in throughout her life.
* A portion of the proceeds from the sales of Jane Austen’s Prayers will go to support Chawton House, what Jane called the ‘Great House’.
