"Those who know the novels of Jane Austen, and there are many, may also be aware of the fact that our knowledge of the writer herself is very limited. It is derived mainly froma few family sources, principally her letters ot her sister Cassandra. With these letters are five written to her niece Fanny, eldest daughter of her brother Edward Austen (who in gratitude to a rich benefactor changed his name to Knight in 1812). The letters written to Fanny, in 1814 and 1817 when she needed advice on whom she should marry, are both entertaining and profound. They show that, with a difference in age between them of only seventeen years, a warm relationship existed between aunt and niece." - from the introduction.
