This is an epistolary novel about a woman called Lady Susan, who is very beautiful, manipulative and a terrible mother. Lady Susan is recently widowed and is looking for a husband for herself while trying to force her daughter into a marriage she doesn’t want too. The series of letters follows her attempts at manipulating three men and her sister-in-law.

This novel is quite short, but very entertaining. As usual, it’s very well-written and it feels like reading the gossip column but for fictional characters, which is what makes it entertaining to me. There is no actual romance in this novel and a lot happens off page. I didn’t mind that except for the ending that is all written in a conclusion section instead of being a letter like the rest of the novel until that point.

Overall, it’s an enjoyable little novel and I will probably reread it in the future. ( )

Not Jane Austen at her best, but still glimmers of those things that make her great. A good sense of humor, irony, and a society in which most people are just navigating the facade to try to reach the truth. There is little depth or character development to this story, and the epistolary style doesn't really suit Austen for me. Still "I liked it" pretty much sums it up, so 3-stars. ( )

I am not a fan of epistolary novels, but I really enjoyed this book. It could have been all of the scheming and scandals. ( )

Apart from an epilogue/conclusion this is written entirely in the form of letters. Lady Susan is recently widowed and in the possession of a 16 year old daughter she considers stupid and hateful. Susan is already the subject of much scandal and gossip (having nearly split up one marriage, and managed to break up another engagement through flirting), before she descends on the house of her brother in law for a stay as she believes she has no where else to go until the scandal settles.

Meanwhile she tries to get a suitable marriage for herself whilst trying to get her daughter off her hands by making whatever marriage agreement will suit.

Even more scandal erupts when her sister in law's brother appears and decides he is in love with her, despite the rumours.

Soon however, Susan is back in Town and through various schemes married and her daughter off her hands.

Interesting way of writing a short book, which I believe was one of the first Austen wrote, but never submitted for publication. The main character is entirely mercenary, never out for romantic love either for herself or her friends. She's only out for a suitable marriage and will be entirely two faced to get what she wants. Cant think of another character like her. ( )

My dear Brother,- I can no longer refuse myself the pleasure of profitting by your kind invitation when we last parted, of spending some weeks with you at Churchill, and therefore, if quite convenient to you and Mrs. Vernon to receive me at present, I shall hope within a few days to be introduced to a Sister whom I have so long desired to be acquainted with.
