The Beautiful Cassandra - And Other Writings by the Young Jane Austen - Audio Book on CD

Jane Austen read by Teresa Gallagher Price: $19.95

Jane Austen was born in 1775 in her father's Rectory in the village of Steventon in Hampshire

By the time of her death in 1817 she had written 6 major novels, left two others unfinished and was the author of a considerable amount of correspondence

Most people know Jane Austen for Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Persuasion and the other novels

Less well known is the fact that she started writing at the age of 8 and many of her early stories were dedicated to her family and friends

The six pieces in this collection were all written when she was between the ages of 12 and 15 and they show a light hearted, humorous approach to storytelling that may surprise those who only know her adult work
