This month's selection is The Jane Austen Society by Natalie Jenner.  Just after World War II, in the small English village of Chawton, an unusual but like-minded group of people band together to attempt something remarkable; to preserve both Jane Austen's legacy and her home.  One hundred and fifty years ago, Chawton was the final home of Jane Austen and the place where she wrote her six novels.  As each person in the group endures their own quiet struggle with loss and trauma, some from the recent war and others from more distant tragedies, they rally together to create the Jane Austen Society.
