Description

Lady Susan has just arrived uninvited at the country home of her brother-in-law, Charles, and his unwelcoming wife, Catherine. Susan’s reputation as an accomplished coquette precedes her, and Catherine will not allow her own brother, Reginald, to fall prey to Susan’s amorous games. Despite warnings, the besotted young man finds himself falling—all to the conniving lady’s delight. But it’s the arrival of Susan’s rebellious sixteen-year-old daughter that sets this romantic roundelay spinning. Told through an exchange of letters, Jane Austen’s Lady Susan is a delicious epistolary novel of love lost and of love found. It shamelessly subverts all expectations of polite romance. And in Austen’s unfinished work, The Watsons, a family reunion sparks the passionate pursuits of four sisters. Where it all leads is a literary guessing game.
