When Charlotte Heywood arrives at the fledging seaside resort of Sanditon, she quickly
forms strong views on her new social circle. While she finds some to be agreeable
enough, others inspire less charitable opinions, such as the penny-pinching Lady
Denham, the rather dim Sir Edward and the highly ridiculous Diana Parker and her
brother Arthur. But Charlotte develops a strong affection for her host’s brother Sidney,
and becomes increasingly friendly with wealthy heiress Miss Jemima Lambe.
Following a sea-bathing accident, the fascinating Dr Hollis enters Charlotte’s life and
sets off a chain of events that will leave both Charlotte and Sanditon changed forever.
Romance, deceit and the threat of ruin force Charlotte to face up to her shortcomings
and, in an attempt to make amends, acknowledge that her own happiness is tied to the
fate of Sanditon.
Jane Austen started work on Sanditon more than 200 years ago and put it aside
unfinished just weeks before her death. Now award-winning writer Rose Servitova, who
skilfully completed Austen’s other unfinished work, The Watsons, has finished the
manuscript in a manner true to Austen’s immensely readable style and sparkling wit.
Rose Servitova’s debut novel, The Longbourn Letters: The Correspondence Between
Mr Collins and Mr Bennet, was published to rave reviews in 2017. Her second novel,
The Watsons (a completion of Jane Austen’s unfinished work), was a finalist in both the
SPR Book Awards and the ScreenCraft Cinematic Book Writing Competition.
Rose spends much of her time writing, visiting historical buildings, talking at literary events
and walking on Irish country roads. She lives in County Limerick with her husband, two
children and an indifferent cat.
