Return to the 19th century and into the world of Jane Austen with beloved PBS host, author and British historian, Lucy Worsley. Through the houses, places and possessions which mattered to her, Lucy takes a fascinating look at Jane Austen’s world and considers what home meant to Jane and to the women like her who populate her novels. Dispelling the myth of the cynical, lonely spinster, Lucy instead offers us a witty, passionate and courageous woman, who, in her quiet way, changed the world.
