It seems that I‘m on a Jane Austen biography kick (well, more specifically her friend, Martha Lloyd). I enjoyed reading Martha‘s household book and recipes so much that I feel like I want to know more about her.

Here goes!

Another fairly recent acquisition I‘ve yet to read, but I love the idea of getting to know Martha Lloyd a bit more. Martha was one of Jane Austen‘s dearest friends and lived with the Austen ladies in Chawton. #Friendship #200PnPCovers
