Valerie Grosvenor Myer's work is the devilishly intricate account of the mind and times of Jane Austen. Letters by, to, and about her, enriched by details of the England of her times, create an exhaustive tome that recreates her most probable life. All of the aspects of her life that later became the models and substance for the characters and dramas of her novels can be found in these pages of her actual experience. The voice of Donada Peters suits the work hand in glove. Her British accent and inflection lend authenticity to the information. Chatty and well paced, the effect is of being at tea with the biographer and hearing this tale in tones of hushed invaded privacy. C.F.G. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 00]
