Summary
Smart, beautiful and desperate for a husband, Charlotte Heywood must escape the clutches of two impossible suitors in order to claim the heart of a charming and fickle young man, in a story originally left unfinished at the author's death. Reprint. 15,000 first printing.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Jane Austen’s last work, soon to be a PBS limited series adapted by acclaimed screenwriter Andrew Davies.

Sanditon—an eleven-chapter fragment left at Jane Austen’s death completed by an Austen devotee and novelist— is a charming addition to Austen’s novels on England’s privileged classes and the deception, snobbery, and unexpected romances that occur in their world. When Charlotte Heywood accepts an invitation to visit the newly fashionable seaside resort of Sanditon, she is introduced to a full range of polite society, from reigning local dowager Lady Denham to her impoverished ward Clara, and from the handsome, feckless Sidney Parker to his amusing, if hypochondriac, sisters. A heroine whose clear-sighted commens sense is often at war with romance, Charlotte cannot help observing around her both folly and passion in many guises. But can the levelheaded Charlotte herself resist the desires of the heart?
