Announcing March's Book Clubs!
On 21 January 1804, Anne Sharpe arrives at Godmersham Park in Kent to take up the position of governess. Anne is neither one of the servants, nor one of the family, and to balance a position between the 'upstairs' and 'downstairs' members of the household is a diplomatic chess game. One wrong move may result in instant dismissal.
When Mr Edward Austen's family comes to stay, Anne forms an immediate attachment to Jane. They write plays together, and enjoy long discussions. Meanwhile Jane's brother, Henry, begins to take an unusually strong interest in the lovely young governess...
And from now on, Anne's days at Godmersham Park are numbered.
