Susan: A Jane Austen Prequel by Alice McVeigh

Literary Fiction and Creative Nonfiction

Susan is a Jane Austen prequel (or Pride and Prejudice variation) brilliantly capturing Austen's own Lady Susan as a young girl. "McVeigh's prose and plotting are pitch-perfect. Emma mingles with Pride and Prejudice in a delightful confrontation between the two books' worlds." -BookLife review for Publishers Weekly. Smithson has just been expelled from a school for young ladies in London. At the mansion of the formidable Lady Catherine de Bourgh, she attracts a raffish young nobleman. But, at the first hint of scandal, her guardian dispatches her to her uncle Collins' rectory in Kent, "where nothing ever happens." Susan mischievously inspires the local squire to put on a play, with consequences no one could possibly have foreseen. From $0.99 SHOP NOW
