The 18th century is a very small place. I’ve just posted on History Hoydens about the strange intersection between Warren Hastings, the controversial Governor-General of India (how many men can boast of being impeached by the Crown and prosecuted by none other than Edmund Burke?) and everyone’s favorite proto-romance novelist, Miss Jane Austen.
The reason I’m tracking Hastings and Austen connections? Well, you all know that Blood Lily is set in India. What I haven’t announced yet is that the following book involves Jane Austen…. I’ll be posting more on that in February!
