In stock

The subject's first husband was the Vicar of Reedham and she lived extensively in Norwich. A biography of a contemporary of Jane Austen, based on her surviving letters and diaries. Betsy Reading married twice, had four children, and had a wide-ranging acquaintance in Norfolk, Kent and Oxfordshire. She and her family experienced elopements and court cases, a disappearance at sea, much joy and much sorrow, and the backdrop to her life was the Napoleonic Wars. Fashion drawings add much to the book's broad appeal.
