Emma Watson returns to her family home after fourteen years with her wealthy and indulgent aunt. Now more refined than her siblings, Emma is shocked by her sisters’ flagrant and desperate attempts to ensnare a husband. To the surprise of the neighbourhood, Emma immediately attracts the attention of eligible suitors – notably the socially awkward Lord Osborne, heir to Osborne Castle – who could provide her with a home and high status if she is left with neither after her father’s death. Soon Emma finds herself navigating a world of unfamiliar social mores, making missteps that could affect the rest of her life. How can she make amends for the wrongs she is seen to have committed without betraying her own sense of what is right?
- Jane Austen commenced writing The Watsons over two hundred years ago, putting it aside unfinished, never to return and complete it. Now, Rose Servitova, author of acclaimed humour title, The Longbourn Letters: The Correspondence between Mr Collins and Mr Bennet has finished Austen’s manuscript in a manner true to Austen’s style and wit - The Watsons.
Signed copies, undedicated, published by Wooster Publishing, 2019, paperback. BRAND NEW.

Really enjoyed this.was interested as i am a real jane austen fan so i was looking forward to this interpretation of the original writings. I did enjoy it but didnt really feel a connection with JA writing style.i could see how the author did strive to ensure the moral of the story regarding the status of women in society of that era.
While it may not be exactly what i had expected i did actually enjoy it very much and thought it good value for money and would certainly like to read the other interpretation novels she has written.
