Product Description

Review

Praise for Helen (9780956003898):

'A satisfying drama, full of twists and turns for us to really get our teeth into

(Bookbag)

[Helen] is a revelation to me and I am grateful for having been put in the way of its wit, its daring and its seriousness (not to be confused with solemnity) of intention (Brian MacFarlane Inside Story)

An intriguing and invigorating breath of Regency splendour and scandal (Rosemary Goring Herald) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Book Description

Regency family values by Jane Austen's greatest rival --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
I'm the publisher and although I chose to revive this novel because it's so throughly engaging and has a surprisingly topical theme I'm concerned that the tag line - `a book in four parts' - used above is misleading. The book is divided into four parts all of which are published in this one volume. It's a big book but carries you along in such an engrossing manner you can't help but speed through, pacing along with a following wind of well crafted characters, plot and dialogue. Happy reading.

Format: Paperback
I recommend this to all fans of Jane Austen as the author was a contemporary of Austen, though I suspect unfamiliar to most of us today. Many of the themes are the same, primarily the need for a young woman to make a successful marriage. However, the canvas is broader in this work and there is a lot of emphasis on the careers of the male characters in the law, medicine and the church. Although much of this seemed a bit divorced from reality and in some instances fanciful, this doesn't seem to matter much as one is swept along by the sheer enthusiasm of the narrative. It would make a great Sunday night TV drama as there is a full cast of assorted characters.
