Having grown up in far less genteel circumstances due to her mother's impudent marriage, she struggles with homesickness and with her treatment as a "poor relation" by her family. After she turns 18, Henry and Mary Crawfield arrive, which sets in motion a number of romantic schemes, plans, and attachments.

Catherine Morland, an unlikely heroine - unlikely because she is so ordinary - forsakes her English village for the pleasures and perils of Bath. There, among a circle of Austen's wonderfully vain, dissembling, and fashionable characters, she meets a potential suitor, Henry Tilney. But with her imagination feuled by melodramatic novels, Catherine turns a visit to his home, Northanger Abbey, into a hunt for dark family secrets. The result is a series of hilarious social gaffes and harsh awakenings that for all of Austen's youthful exuberance nevertheless conveys her mature vision of literature and life - and the consequences of mistaking one for the other.
Anne Elliot and Frederick Wentworth are happily engaged until one simple Persuasion from Anne's cousin's, Lady Russell, changes everything. After returning home a rich and powerful sea captain, Wentworth finds that Anne's family is financially ruined and his own sister is a tenant in their home.

More by Jane Austen
Lady Susan, with its wicked, beautiful, intelligent and energetic heroine, is a sparkling melodrama which takes its tone from the outspoken and robust eighteenth century. Written later, and probably abandoned after her father's death, The Watsons is a tantalizing and highly delightful story whose vitality and optimism centre 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 and its themes concern the new speculative consumer society and foreshadow the great social upheavals of the Industrial Revolution.
Discovered and published posthumously, these writings were first introduced in a memoir written by the late Jane Austen's newphew in 1871. They show quite a different style of writing than the rest in her collection, and prove to be very amusing for both study and reading for pleasure.
Sandition and Other Stories includes Jane Austen's unfinished work Sandition as well as The Watsons (another uncompleted work), the novella Lady Susan, and a collection of Austen's juvenilia. This Everyman's Library edition is crafted to last through years of reading; it features acid-free natural-cream-colored text paper, a cloth-covered hardcover with stamping, a Smyth-sewn binding, a silk ribbon marker, and a European-style half-round spine style. In addition, this work includes an original introduction by Peter Washington, an up-to-date bibliography, and a complete chronology of Jane Austen's life and works. 502 pages, hardcover.
When Charlotte Heywood accepts an invitation to visit the newly fashionable seaside resort of Sanditon, she is introduced to a full range of polite society, from the reigning local dowager, Lady Denham to her impoverished ward, Clara, and from the handsome, feckless Sidney Parker to his amusing, if hypochondriacal sisters.
