The Mysterious Death of Miss Austen

The Mysterious Death of Miss Austen

(2011)
A novel by

 
Jane Austen died at the tragically early age of 41, though none of the medical theories about her death have provided a satisfactory explanation. Could the cause have been something more sinister? The Mysterious Death of Miss Austen imagines the summer of 1805 and Jane's close friendship with Anne Sharp, governess to her brother Edward's children. As the bond between the two women deepens, Anne senses a dark undercurrent within the family, something that troubles Jane and threatens those she loves. Anne feels compelled to investigate - could her vivid imagination be leading her astray, or was someone out to silence Jane before her novels revealed a shocking family secret?
