Jane Austen: Her Heart Did Whisper.
Translated from Italian by Matteo Benassi. This gorgeous black & white graphic fictional biography of Jane Austen will thrill those young folks who want to know more about her early years. The author has written the story and drawn the artwork. Her Jane is feisty and funny, and with a dash of fantasy in an otherwise very accurate depiction of Austen's early life, she decides to remain a writer rather than follow through with her engagement and marry Tom Lefroy. A very good brief, completely factual biography at the back of the book, written by Mara Barbuni, is accompanied by a timeline of Austen's life. Graphic Universe, a Division of Lerner Publishing Group. 2018. Paper. NEW. $9.00
