Representing what Richard Church regarded as Jane Austen's literary work-basket, this collection contains not only her hilarious History of England, illustrated by her favourite sister Cassandra, but the unfinished Sanditon, the novel of her maturity on which she was working at her death, aged forty-two. Also included are the two epistolary novels, Lady Susan and Love and Friendship [sic], and other, shorter works: ‘The Watsons’, ‘Catharine’, ‘Lesley Castle’, ‘Evelyn’, ‘Frederic and Elfrida’, ‘Jack and Alice’, ‘Edgar and Emma’, ‘Henry and Eliza’ and ‘The Three Sisters’.
About the Author
Jane Austen (1775-1817) was an English novelist whose works are among the most popular novels ever written. Her keen eye for social tension, and ear for taut, witty dialogue have delighted readers for centuries, while her novels have maintained historical importance through their analysis of the dependence of women on marriage to gain social standing and security. She has been widely adapted for both stage and screen, and continues to be among the most widely-read of late-18th-/early 19th-century writers.
This story captures that first date moment at the movie theater when your date touches your hand in the dark while knocking the popcorn over in the loudest way possible - its cute and exciting, but also slightly embarrassing. Sandhya has crafted another excellent teen romance about a shy and ambitious young woman trying to show the world her passion and talent. A fantastic summer read! - Jessica
