It's with a heavy heart that Jane Austen takes up a new
at Chawton Cottage in Hampshire. Secretly mourning the lost
love of her
life, she's stunned to learn that the late Lord Harold
made her heir to an extraordinary bequest: a Bengal chest
his diaries, letters, and most intimate correspondence. From
Jane is expected to write a memoir of the Gentleman Rogue
posterity. But before she can put pen to paper on this labor
she discovers a corpse in the cellar of her new
man was a common laborer, and a subsequent coroner's
he was murdered elsewhere and transported to Chawton
Jane and her family are thrust into the center of a brewing
this provincial village that doesn't take kindly to
general--and to Austens in particular.
And just as
a connection between the murder and the shattering truth
somewhere in Lord Harold's papers, violent death strikes yet
unsuspecting vicitim. Suddenly there are suspects and
everywhere Jane looks--local burglaries, thwarted passions,
knights, and members of the royal family itself who want
hushed . . . even in death. As the tale of one man's
unfolds--a life that runs a parallel course to the history
continents--Jane races against time to catch a cunning
more innocent lives are taken. But her determination to
Harold's legacy could exact the costliest price of all: her
Jane and His Lordship's Legacy is
historical suspense writing at its very finest, graced
perception, and uncommon intelligence of its singular
heroine in a
mystery that will test the mettle of her mind and heart.
