Charlotte the Heywood, captivating heroine of Sanditon, is smart, beautiful, and in search of a husband. As in all of Austen's novels, however, the road to matrimony is littered with obstacles: Charlotte must escape the clutches of an insufferable suitor, deal with the fortune-hunting schemes of the reigning local dowager, and outsmart a bevy of ambitious beauties who have set their sights on the charming Sidney Parker -- and convince the fickle young man that he really loves her.

Fans of Jane had to buy it and had to read it. And we fans wish she had finished it too. It is better than nothing, but not as much care, understanding of the era or of mores and morals were included in the the larger non-Jane part of the book. Read full review

Worth re-reading a few times . . .
