Lady Susan: by Jane Austen
adapted by India Marie Paul
Jane Austen's first written work, LADY SUSAN, was never publication ready but was still published after her death. She began the piece when she was 17 years old and wrote the narrative all in letters with a conclusion writing out the rest of the story's outline. It follows a widow who has to flee to her in-laws estate in the country and is determined to get her daughter married. With her charm and wit she manages to throw this quiet place into quite a tizzy.
My adaptation aims to make this novella feel complete with the addition of a narrator who has uncovered these letters in an investigation into her namesake, the one and only Lady Susan.
