Cassandra's Sister: eBook (Reflowable ePub)

By Veronica Bennett

A powerful, fictionalized account of how love, death and betrayal shaped the life of novelist Jane Austen.

Young Jane – or Jenny, as she was known – is a girl with a head full of questions that no one seems able to answer. But the sudden arrival of her worldly-wise cousin, Eliza, to the parsonage in rural Hampshire brings Jenny some of the answers she is seeking and provides the germ of an idea... Building on the close relationship between Jane and her older sister, Cassandra, and drawing on characters and incidents from such masterpieces as Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility, Cassandra's Sister creates a moving portrait of one of the world's greatest and best-loved writers.

Customer reviews


'Bennett portrays the social conventions of coming of age, courtship and marriage beautifully, showing both the excitement and the sense of constriction and frustration that they must have produced. The political events of the time are also woven in very well, so the reader is given a good sense of the spirit of the times and the places that Austen lived' INIS
