Sanditon

£19.99

Product description

Sanditon was Jane Austen's last novel, bequeathed unfinished to her niece. This continuation, praised for its delicacy, wit and discretion, will delight all those who have not yet discovered its world.

When Charlotte Heywood, eldest daughter of a family of fourteen, is invited to stay by Mr and Mrs Parker of Sanditon, she accepts with alacrity, intrigued to visit the once quiet town being promoted by Mr Parker as the newly fashionable resort for sea-bathing.

As a guest of the Parkers, Charlotte is introduced to the full range of Sanditon polite society, from Lady Denham to her impoverished ward Clara, and from the feckless Sidney Parker to his hypochondriac sisters. A heroine whose clear-sighted common sense is often at war with romance, she cannot help observing around her both folly and romance in many guises. But can she herself resist the attractions of the heart?

Jane Austen shows herself, with her last work, to be as acutely conscious of society's whims and fashions as ever - and as able to derive from them delightful and delicate comedy.

Used copy showing bumps to corners and creases to spine but in generally good condition. Rare find.
