Overview

One abandoned, one unfinished, these short works show Jane Austen equally at home with romance and with social change. In The Watsons, Mr. Watson is a widowed clergyman with four daughters in search of a husband or two. In Sanditon, Mr. Parker hopes to turn a fishing village into a stylish seaside resort. In true Austen fashion, these tales are touching, funny, charming, and sharp.

About the Author

Jane Austen(1775–1817) is considered by many scholars to be the first great woman novelist. Born in Steventon, England, she later moved to Bath and began to write for her own and her family’s amusement. Her novels, set in her own English countryside, depict the daily lives of provincial middle-class families with wry observation, a delicate irony, and a good-humored wit.
