Reviews

"If you thought you knew how Jane Austen came to be viewed as the world's greatest novelist, think again. Wells's meticulously researched and beautifully written book introduces a fascinating group of individuals whose contributions to Austen studies have long been obscure. After reading this book, I came to care as much about Alberta Burke and Oscar Fay Adams as I do about many of Austen's characters." --Professor Jennie Batchelor, University of Kent, UK

"An insightful, illuminating and meticulously researched book. Wells animates her subjects with skill, energy and affection in a study that significantly deepens our understanding of early Austen experts and enthusiasts and their contribution to the field." --Lizzie Dunford, Director, Jane Austen's House, UK
