The author

As a descendent of Jane Austen's eldest brother James Austen and Mary Lloyd Austen,  FREDIS WELLAND  cherishes the silhouettes created by Jane Austen's favourite nephew James Edward Austen-Leigh. Freydis created the concept and drew together the images, text  and  quotations for  Life in the Country  published in 2008 by The British Library, and edited  The British Library 2010  Jane Austen Desk  and  Pocket Diaries, The British Library Jane Austen Journal,  and the lavishly illustrated  Jane Austen Daybook.
Freydis lives in Vancouver, Canada

JANE AUSTEN  was born in 1775 at Steventon, Hampshire. She was the seventh child of the local rector and her life, by modern standards, was uneventful. In 1801 she moved with her parents to Bath but returned to Hampshire when her father died, settling in the village of Chawton. She remained there until 1817, when she moved to Winchester to be within easy reach of her doctor. She died that year, at age forty-one, and is buried in Winchester Cathedral, which also contains a plaque in honor of her memory. Four of her novels were published anonymously in her lifetime; two more, one of which was Persuasion, appeared posthumously.
