Jane Austen

The family of Jane Austen lived east of the New Forest, which Jane Austen visited. In the 'Albion Park' chapter of THE FOREST, Fanny Albion the heroine, like Jane Austen herself, is taken to the fashionable spa of Bath, where she is accused of theft and put on trial. The circumstances of this trial closely follow a similar scandal involving Jane Austen's aunt.
