I liked this biography because it covered so much of the known details of her life. I borrowed a copy from the library that didn't include any sort of pedigree chart, which made keeping up with some of Jane's relatives (who belongs to whom, etc.)in order a bit difficult. I also don't like the way the author took the liberty of stating how Jane felt or what she thought. Those are conjectures and assumptions, but it was very informative and not a difficult read.
