A little known, very early Jane Austen work, performed on the radio for the first time.

A beautiful and scheming widow seeks a husband for both herself and her shy and awkward daughter, while engaged in an affair with a married man.

Who will win the heart of the rich and handsome Reginald De Courcy? And will the truth about Lady Susan ever come out? These are the questions a teenaged Jane Austen posed in this early epistolary novella, published long after her death - the first of her many wise and witty studies of love and marriage, and the games people play.

Read by Emilia Fox, Lucy Robinson and Theo Fraser Steele

Abridged by Eileen Horne

Producer: Clive Brill

A Pacificus production for BBC Radio 4.
