Dramatised biography of the young Jane Austen, revealing how her feisty character affected her romance with a young Irishman and how the experience came to have an influence on her writing.
Whilst her parents hope for her to meet and settle with a wealthy husband of considerable social status, she much prefers a roguish Celt with whom she can match intellects and share repartee.
