I first bought this book in 1977 and read it at least once a year! The front cover is all faded by now, which prompted me to get a replacement. The unfinished novel by Jane Austen was brilliantly and seamlessly completed by "Another Lady". If you don't read the notes you could hardly tell that she (Another Lady) took up the baton from 76 pages! I wonder why this has not been made into a film or TV adaptation sespecially as they had to scrape the barrel with "Becoming Jane" just to cash in on the popularity of anything to do with Jane Austen!!

Format: Paperback
On the 17th January, 1817 Jane Austen began work on a novel that is now known as SANDITON. It was never completed. Her declining health robbed her of what she dearly loved most, writing, and on the 18th of March 1817 after penning 22,000 words she wrote the last lines of chapter twelve and put down her pen. Four months later at age 41 she would succumb to what is generally believed to have been Addison's disease.

Set in the emerging seaside village of Sanditon on the Sussex coast we are introduced to a large cast of characters dominated by the two minions of the community: Mr. Parker a local landowner with grand designs of turning a fishing village into a fashionable watering place offering the therapeutic or curative benefits of sea-bathing and his partner Lady Denham, the local great lady who has "a shrewd eye & self satisfying air" and cares little about the community and only her pocketbook.

The story unfolds from the perspective of Charlotte Heywood, a young lady experiencing her first trip away from her family as a guest of Mr. and Mrs. Parker. Sanditon is populated by a comical ensemble of residents and visitors who upon Charlotte's first acquaintance are altogether different than they later appear. Lady Denham's nephew Sir Edward Denham is handsome, amiable and titled but is prone to long inflated speeches in the most pompous and affected style in an attempt to reinforce his own notion that he is a romantic character born to seduce women "quite in the line of Lovelaces." (Lovelace refers to the villain Robert Lovelace in Samuel Richardson's 1748 novel CLARISSA who rapes and ruins the young heroine.) He has designs upon Lady Denham's companion Clara Brereton who he shall either woo with affection or carry off.

I bought this when it was first published and return to it regularly. The "Other Lady" captures perfectly the style, language and wit of Jane herself. A delight!

I read this some years ago, and having recently been very disappointed with the flood of Austen rip-offs, was pleased to find this version again and re-read it.
It is the best of the Austen rip-offs because:
-the language is not glaringly out of key with Austen
-the plot is not inconsistent with an Austen plot
-the writing is of good quality
-the characters are not obvious 21st century stereotypes dressed in Georgian clothes.

i waited impatiently to read it on print since i had only read it as an ebook. The book met my expectation as a paper book and the delivery was awsome. Thank you once again because i was looking for a paper copy the last 4 years! A fabulous book and a funny one. As far as 'The Other lady' you can hardly tell was not Jane Austen! I recommend it!
