Gill Hornby

For Jane Austen fans. Based on the letters of a young governess, a fictional retelling of the Austen family’s time spent living in Kent at Godmersham Park, just a few miles outside of Faversham. Gill Hornby is passionate about the trials and tribulations faced by Anne Sharp, a governess who became close to Jane Austen and her family, balancing a position between the ‘upstairs’ and ‘downstairs’ of this stately manor.

Gill Hornby is author of the novels The Hive and All Together Now, as well as The Story of Jane Austen, a biography of Austen for young readers.

With host Maggie Butt.
