the Jane Austen connection...

Jane Austen was born December 16, 1775,  Hampshire, England. Her novels of love among the landed gentry gained popularity after 1869. Her novels, including Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility, are considered literary classics.


We have for many years been Jane Austen devotees. Although we now live in Northfield, Vermont, we lived for many years in Winchester, not far from Jane's home at Chawton, in Hampshire.
