Thoughts on the book, “Just Jane” and Pictures of the City of Bath

Hi everyone!

Remember when I stumbled upon fabulous bargains at a bookstore closing sale?

One of the books I picked up was this novel:

It’s historical fiction based on the life of the lovely and delightful Jane Austen. The book made you feel like you were in one of her movies – except that you were learning about Jane herself. If you love her other works (or the movies based on them), I think you’ll really enjoy this novel.

Stick with me for a moment…

At one point, Jane’s family moved to Bath, believing that it would be better for her father’s ailing health. They city was known for its healing waters that were said to cure a number of ills.

All this to say, I found a couple of posts from a talented photographer that contain pictures of Bath. Here is part 1 and part 2. Though I may never be able to travel to Europe, it was absolutely fascinating to see some of the city’s beautiful architecture and imagine what life would’ve been like during her lifetime.

Enjoy!
