Lucy Worsley's 6 best books

Lucy Worsley's latest book is Jane Austen at Home: A Biography. One of her six best books, as shared at the Daily Express:
EMMA by Jane Austen

My favourite Austen novel because it’s got a prickly, difficult heroine. It has elements of a detective story in it and also the nicest hero in Mr Knightley who is kind and wise. My new book is dedicated to my husband who I name as my own Mr Knightley.
Read about the other books on the list.

Emma is on John Mullan's list of ten of the best wines in literature, and among Sophie Kinsella's six best books, Tanya Byron's six best books, Judith Martin's five favorite novels, and Monica Ali's ten favorite books.
