This lady is one of the best biographers I have ever read. I have tried to read about several other people lately that I truly wish had the benefit of a great biographer like Ms. Byrne. She has proven to me once again (along with the several very bad biographies I've plodded through lately) that it takes a very particular talent to produce a truly revealing and readable biography.

interesting and written to appeal to the new to Austen reader, but misses out some important facts
