Description - A Walk with Jane Austen by Lori Smith
At thirty-three, Lori Smith found herself falling short of her expectations: single, facing a difficult job, and sinking into something like depression. She needed a change - and she needed it now. In the absence of a Darcy, she made the bold move of leaving her job and country to travel through Jane Austen's England. On a voyage of multi-layered discovery, Lori leads readers through Jane's life and the landscapes she knew and loved - from Oxford to Bath, to London and the Hampshire countryside - and through her own emotional landscapes, in which grace and hope take the place of stagnation and despair. Along the way, we explore the small and the great things in human nature to discover what Austen herself knew: the joy of life, however ordinary or unexpected.
