Brave Jane Austen, a picture book biography of the groundbreaking female novelist. Perfect for Women''s History Month.

Born in the late 1700s, Jane Austen was a smart, creative girl in a house full of boys, all of whom could aspire to accomplish many things as adults while girls were raised primarily to become good wives. Jane didn''t have much opportunity to go to school but she read everything she could, including all the books in her father''s study.
