Previously unpublished in unabridged audio, these three works (one novel unpublished in her lifetime and two unfinished fragments) reveal Jane Austen's development as a great artist.Lady Susan, with its wicked, beautiful, intelligent, and energetic heroine, is a sparkling melodrama that takes its tone from the outspoken and robust 18th century.
Written later, and probably abandoned after her father's death, The Watsons is a tantalizing and highly delightful story whose vitality and optimism centers on the marital prospects of the Watson sisters in a small provincial town.
Sanditon, Jane Austen's last fiction, is set in a seaside town; its themes concern the new speculative consumer society and foreshadow the great social upheavals of the Industrial Revolution.
"Three of Jane Austen's less well-known novels are nonetheless classic Austen: complex characters from varying social classes concern themselves with romance and marriage. Norma West reads in a soft, feminine English voice, such as one would expect of an Austen work....West is particularly skilled with the pregnant pauses that signal an important development in the drama."
