In completing Jane Austen's last novel, Julia Barrett has emerged with a literary treasure, holding true to the characters and theme designed by Ms. Austen. Set in the developing seaside town of Sanditon, it portrays a young woman from the countryside who is exposed to the sophistication and cynicism of resort life. Her name is Charlotte. With disarming charm and wit, she observes for us the array of quirky characters who reside in the booming resort-to-be.

The innocent but keen-witted Charlotte quickly finds herself rather deeply involved in this uproarious little town. She can't help but get swept up in the antics of the Parkers and Denhams, even while she is vexed and perplexed by the droll Sidney Parker. But even the best efforts of this charming young lady may not be enough to save the budding resort town.

    " Awful. The two stars are for Jane alone. I liked the version from Another Lady. This one used a lot a vocab and not a lot else. I didn't get it. "

    " Bored me to tears. I tried on 3 different occasions to get through the book, to no avail. I finally decided that since it is a fragment of Austen's last novel, I should give it a chance. I finally stopped half way through. If Charlotte is supposed to be the main character then something went awry. Her love interest doesn't even appear until page 70 or so (I had to flip to the back to see who it was), and the characters with the most description are pithy and unlikable. "

    " Bit disappointed here...not sure where Austen left off and Barrett stepped in, but regardless, the book never hooked me. Stylistically satisfying, but storyline is flattish and characters don't "live". "

    " An okay interpretation of Jane Austen's last writing. Not one of Julia Barrett's best. "
