Gill Hornby

Sunday Times bestselling author Gill Hornby tells the fascinating story of Anne Sharpe, who became close to Jane Austen after arriving at Godmersham Park in 1804 to take up the position of governess.

The governess role is a uniquely awkward one. 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. At 31 years old, Anne has no previous experience of either teaching or fine country houses. One wrong move may result in instant dismissal. Anne knows that she must never let down her guard.

From the author of the Sunday Times bestselling Miss Austen, comes a wonderfully original and emotionally complex story.

Duration: 1 hour

Masterly. A brilliant piece of storytelling with all the deft touches and shading of Austen’s novels’ – Helena Kelly
