Description

Only single-volume edition available of this exciting dramatic early novella which is an unknown work for Jane Austen's many fans.

Written in a series of letters to the daughter of a friend, Love and Friendship tells of a young girl's path to betrayal, by way of a seemingly ecstatic marriage.

It is accompanied by The Three Sisters, another expertly crafted epistolary novel.

When a noble youth arrives unannounced to request the hand of the matchless Laura, it seems their future is one of contentment and bliss - that is until his family learn of the marriage and, one by one, they reject the new bride.

Such begins the series of unspeakable events that make up Laura's lot in life.

But tragedy and comedy here go hand in hand as Austen delivers a stringent satire on drawing-room society, brilliantly heralding her later masterpieces.
