review 1: I enjoyed this "behind the scenes" book. While I already knew much of the information, I found it helpful as I just started to visit and tour Virginia old homes (Arlington House, Monticello, homes around Williamsburg/Yorktown) from the time period, which was not quite the same, but it definitely gave me more insight. I would re-read this if/when I go back to the UK so I have some more perspective.
review 2: Behind Jane Asuten's Door by Jennifer Forest is a great book for Jane Austen fans to read. It's a really quick read at about 54 pages. Jennifer Frost takes you into a regency style house and explains the importance of the rooms from the decorations to the social standings, a room would convey it all. The author goes from room to room giving you an imaginar
... morey tour of the rooms and their uses. I really enjoyed reading this book. It helped me understand more about this time period and the characters that Jane Austen wrote about. I think Forest did a fantastic job. If you love Jane Austen or books set in Regency/Victorian era, this book will definitely shed some light on that time period. less

Great background information to Jane Austen's books. Now I want to dive into one of those books!
I enjoyed this book very much. This was a fun way to learn about an earlier period of time.
This was an interesting look into homes during the Regency era. It was a quick fun read.
A fun review.
