After the death of her famous sister Jane, Cassandra Austen returns to the home of her family’s friends. She knows that somewhere in the dusty, sprawling vicarage there is some letters containing secrets that must not be revealed.

Although not exactly a book about Jane Austen, it is a story about the two sisters and has some interesting facts about their youth and relationship.

It is an original and emotionally complex novel which I enjoyed enormously.
