The Lady of Letters

Have you ever wondered what would have become of Jane Austen and her writing if she had continued her love affair with Tom Lefroy? I have. Follow me on my journey of weaving the imaginary tale of a life that could have been.

My story begins in the long lonely hours at Steveton after Jane and Toms failed elopement. Our Jane is trying to comfort herself with the knowledge that she did the honorable thing by releasing him. Her family and friends are trying to comfort the shell of the lively girl they once knew.

How will Jane write of the heart when her very own is broken? Will lost love hold her back? Is it really lost?

Follow along as what was once thought lost is found again in the guise of a hasty letter. After all, Jane received the title of "The Lady of Letters" for a reason. That reason is just more interesting than you think.
