Three works by Jane Austen, including her delightful final work set in a newly established seaside resort with a glorious cast of hypochondriacs and speculators.

In the final months of Jane Austen's life, she began work on a new novel about social drama in the small seaside town of Sandition, once a small fishing village and now a bustling spa town. In the charming story of Charlotte Heywood, a new arrival, Austen contemplated a changing society with a mixture of skepticism and amusement and notably crafted her only character of color in the mixed-race heiress Miss Lambe. In addition to Sandition, this volume includes Lady Susan, an early epistolary novel depicting an unscrupulous coquette toying with several men, and The Watsons, a delightful fragment, whose spirited heroine finds her marriage opportunities restricted by poverty and pride. With three vital and lesser-known works, this book is a must-have Austen fans.
