Publisher's Summary

Jane Austen wrote Love and Friendship (originally spelled Love and Freindship [sic]) when she was just 14 years old. The three notebooks that contain her early works, including this story, are currently on display at the Bodleian Library and the British Museum. Taking the form as letters written by the heroine to the daughter of her friend, this story resembles a fairy tale that lampoons the conventions of romantic stories at the time.

Letter to make up a book

This was a new twist I didn’t see coming when I got this book. Having read many of Jane’s works I was surprised which is hard considering I’ve read so many of her works to see that she did the whole book as a series of letters. I wondered where Stieg Larsson got the idea for his books.

In the end this is a fun story that I won’t ruin for anyone as it surprised me which again after reading almost all of Jane’s works was hard to do.

Great short story by JA

Another great addition to the beautiful work of Jane Austen. If you enjoy reading classics, I suggest giving this short story a listen.
