5 Things you need to know about Martha Lloyd

In my forthcoming debut biography Jane Austen’s Best Friend, The Life and Influence of Martha Lloyd I undertake an examination of an often overlooked, yet very special friendship. In shining a light on Jane Austen in the role of best friend we get to picture her as she has never really been viewed before. What we glean about her as a person is both riveting and heart-warming.
