In season 1, we see how Lucy Worsley walks us through the history of written English romances, providing us a very transparent view of how the socio-political and cultural events and ideas have helped in shaping the oh-so-perfect endings of the literary works of art of pioneering authors like Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, Mrs Henry Wood and HG Wells.
The show includes a sneak peek into the historic old houses, jealousy glasses, Georgian eyes, eye portrait miniatures, and informative segments on the life of the novelists, their inspiration, marriage, and romance in the Georgian and Victorian Era.
