Hidden in an old chest in her brother's attic, Jane Austen's memoirs are uncovered after hundreds of years, bricked up behind an old wall.
Written shortly before her death, one volume was preserved immaculately, and its contents both shocked and thrilled readers.
Detailing a love affair the author was apparently determined to keep secret, Jane's memoir offers readers untold insights into her mind and heart.
Many rumours abound about a mysterious gentleman said to be the love of Jane's life - finally, the truth may have been found.
