"Lady Susan" is perhaps the shortest and least known of Austen’s novels, dealing with the obnoxious flirting and social manners of Susan Vernon, a young widow who comes to visit her in-laws. Soon, a romance with a young man begins, and Lady Susan becomes indirectly responsible for the 16-year-old daughters attempt to escape from school due to an arranged marriage that is brewing.

An entertaining and fast-paced novel about flirtatious machinations and cunning plans, "Lady Susan" is a petite, but extremely valuable gem in Austen’s treasury of novels. Recommended for fans of Jane Austen and readers in general.

Jane Austen (1775-1817) is one of the most beloved British writers of all time. During her short life she published six novels: ´Sense and Sensibility´, ´Pride and Prejudice´, ´Mansfield Park´, ´Emma´, ´Northanger Abbey´ and ´Persuasion´, that are all considered as literary classics today. Her writing is full of sharp observations on the society in which she evolved, as well as ripe with timeless irony, and a solid dose of humour. She has created immortal characters that have inspired countless authors, novels, and movies such as Bridget Jones and Clueless.
The most notable film adapted from a Jane Austen novel is Pride and Prejudice from 2005 starring Keira Knightley (Pirates of the Caribbean) and Matthew Macfadyen.
