Publisher's Summary

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. 

Revised edition: Previously published as Lady Susan & The Watsons, this edition of Lady Susan & The Watsons (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

Always delightful!

Jane Austen is now forever etched as a favorite author of mine. Even in short works, her intelligent wit and wonderful gift with words is apparent. The Watsons would have been a great story if it were fully developed I believe, and the direction it was going in is so well displayed that the reader can satisfactorily finish it for themselves.
